Backlit, Raindrops and a Spider

Post on August 26, 2012 Spider Black & WhiteBugsMacro


Shadow of a spider with a little bit of creativity here. I stumped upon this big spider on a palm leaf in a late evening with strong backlit — Many be raindrop in background too?

Why not.

Few failed attempts and a week later, I settled with slower exposure to drag the raindrop longer. I provision a color ones but i think it looks better in Black and White.
