Having recently documented in a rather cold fashion a couple of spider specimens, I thought I'd set out to capture one is a shot with a more artistic feel. This Garden Spider spinning its intricate web between gorse bushes provided a good opportunity. Worth clicking for the larger files to appreciate some of the web detail.
