Last night Tom told me that there was an Orb spider hanging out in the lavender in our front garden.
I thought Orby would be a good photo opportunity for my 53 Tuesday’s project.
So after coming back from my run, having a shower I grabbed the camera and went out to inspect.
Orby was in hiding, he must have known that I was coming. I found his web but didn’t find him.
I decided that the light was too nice and that I would focus on the lavender instead.
With the extension tube on my 40mm lens had now become a macro, so it was just a matter of finding it’s sweet spot.
Golden hour was in full force and the glow on the lavender was just exquisite.
Suddenly a damselfly appeared and landed on one of the lavender buds.
Quietly and slowly I made my way in and captured it before it flew away.
Location: Our front garden
Lens: 40mm with extension tube
