The Spider's Larder

Today we set-up a screened room tent kind of thing. (We haven't been able to sit
outside for some time, due to cutbacks to the County's Mosquito Abatement department.)
We enjoyed a quiet dinner outside free of the buzzing, biting pests. On the way back to the
house I saw the sun setting on this spider web. By the time I got done shooting I was covered
in mosquito bites!

This picture is amazing! Excellent composition and focusing. As beautiful as this picture is, I just can't do spiders. They are around my house all of the time and I have never been able to get rid of them. Have any of you guys had any success with pest control for your house?

Cutbacks in mosquito control? Ok, I'm not moving to northern CA! Great photo - beautiful and creepy at the same time.

Some times it's hard to love the great outdoors & all it offers isn't it :>) Lovely capture ( no pun intended )
