Spinning the Web
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Notice the silk coming out of the spider's abdomen while using the hind leg to place the thread in place. |
All spiders produce silk, a thin, strong protein strand extruded by the spider from spinnerets most commonly found on the end of the abdomen. A spinneret is a spider's silk-spinning organ. It is usually on the underside of a spider's abdomen, to the rear. Most spiders have six spinnerets; some have four or two. They move independently and in concert to build webs. (Wikipedia).

Thanks for your comment on my recent picture.
Though you are not all that new to TN, welcome all the same.
Your macro of a spider spinning out the web is very good. The subject is in fairly good focus and the colors are natural.
You have done very well to capture the moment the silk is teased from the abdomen.
The focus is a little unsharp but there must have been a lot of movement from the spider at this point.
TFS and Best Regards
