    Get bored waiting for the echidna?
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    The sun was just at the right angle. :)
    Ah Mr Echidna was no-show today. I heard some rustling in the undergrowth butt couldn't spot him, so I climbed up the creek in search of an interesting composition.

    Good use of angle in this as it shows a rainbow in the web
  • Jack High said:
    Very cool shot. Almost abstract but still recognisable adds a lot of interest. Lovely colours.
  • Scott Leach said:
    Stunning, amazing that you have captured the colours so well
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Mitch :)
    Yeah it is somewhat abstract. Combination of angle, subject and DoF makes it look like that.
    It really stood out. I was trying to get a good composition of our creek bed, but noticed this web shining out like a jewel, and quickly changed lenses.

    I like this one Dave. 400mm wow. How far from the subject were you?
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Warwick - I guess I was between 5 and 10m from it. This shot is cropped to portrait orientation from a landscape orientation shot.

    Stunning image David. That's a real nature's beauty!
    PS. By the way, where was de spider? did you see it? ;)

    I think it was hiding ;-)

    I can see I'm going to have to come and visit one day and go on a 'macro' hunt! Nice shot.

    You would be most welcome to come visit, Michelle. :)
    Come visit accompanied and I can set my horde to work at entertainment.
    I might even be tempted to make some scones - if this heat ever breaks!

    I've taken a shot similar while bush walking once. They are amazing when you see all the colours.
