I'd never have seen her if she hadn't been dangling an inch from my nose. I was peering through a chain-link fence when a tiny crab spider rappelled down on her silk from the top bar, and hung there, gesticulating madly at me.
I wasted a few seconds arguing with the camera; "No, not the tree! Not the rocks! The spider, you goof, the spider!" And then she dropped away.
Total time elapsed: 5 seconds. Then I got out the other camera, set it to Macro, and went looking for her. But she was hiding on the far side of the fence by the time I got there.
|Cropped 'way down. I see four eyes. And her silk thread.|
Saqué la otra cámara, y la ajusté para sacar fotos de cerca, y fui a buscar la araña otra vez. Pero cuando la hallé, estaba escondida tras el alambre. (Quinta foto.)
Foto # 6; haciendo zoom en la primera foto. Veo cuatro ojos, y su telaraña.
