okay, so it's not very christmas-y...


...but isn't it sort of miraculous in its own (slightly creepy) way?

I think we had one exactly like it in our yard a few years ago. Have a wonderful week Leslie.

Hi there - interesting picture.

Is it alive or is it just a spider "skin"?

I like the green sunspot. And there is something very elegant about the way the spider is floating in that water. I'm perfectly happy admiring him like this. Just not if he was in my car, crawling across my steering wheel at midnight. (His friends like doing that.) Or baked in something...fast-forward to 7:14: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hy8lsiCORko

It is an interesting shot...at first glance I thought is was a photo of lace. I am curious to know if the spider was alive as well. I've never seen a white spider. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

no, the spider was NOT alive - it was floating in the birdbath in my garden. i don't get that close to live spiders ;)
