EW! Gross!!!

Just thought I would get that out of the way for you so that we waste no time and get right to the "ooh's and aah's". :-) This is a first for me and so much fun. I was bored, biding time until I had to leave for a piano lesson so I was wandering the yard looking for photo moments. I originally got my camera to capture a Cardinal who had landed in my yard...and promptly flew away as soon as I had camera in hand. Anywho...I got some pretty shots of some flowers, a weed clover, and a blade of grass... But the pièce de résistance came from a spider. Yes, a spider. :-) Any girl who has a true artist in her soul has to be able to admit that spiders and their habitats are truly beautiful things. (just so long as their habitat doesn't involve mine that is...) I was fiddling around the neighbors tree when I noticed this itty bitty spider. My red-headed stubborn streak kicked in and I determined then and there that I was going to stand there and "half-way press" my shutter button until the camera focused properly and I got a shot of this spider and it's web. Well, after much patience and suppressing of feelings like, "I'm going to throw this camera across the yard!!!!"........

:-) I'll save the other photos for a desperate blog moment. :-)
