I Got My New Camera!!! woohoo - not that I'm excited at all, oh nooo! but yes, I have finally decided upon the camera system I want to spend the rest of my life with.. :D

Anyway, getting back to topics - Webs (and those that get caught in them..) - here's a couple of my first goes with my new A57 plus 18-55 lens.  I just love this camera!

Well, perhaps I can help (or maybe this will make it worse..)  :D

That pretty little spider was only about 25mm (1") from end to end including those long legs - I was quite a bit closer to her than the fly...  I believe she is a young female 'Golden Orb', and while she will grow to quite an impressive size with a bit of luck - her body alone will be about 42mm (1.5") long! - the good news is that these spiders are not really venomous and are also very mild-mannered and non-aggressive - they just won't bite unless *extremely* provoked - they would make a great pet!

The bad news is that once they grow up, they industriously spin up huge webs that are just *great* to walk into at night... :o  It's happened to me a few times, but I've never had the spider get on me (they prefer to hide at night and instead get out onto the web during daylight).  And as I said, they are very, very unlikely to bite anyway - they really are a very polite spider...

That fly, however, was a horse-fly - and they do bite..  I'd much rather have the spider on me than him..

is that a spider on your hair ?!!!

And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"

Here's two Perspectives.. (is probably not the perspective your after, but I can't find any interesting perspectives)
Two sculptures looking out at the garden from the from garden's perspective.
& their perspective from their little shed. (I wonder if some folk will notice the discrepancy)

I suspect you are referring to the alien's power to make plants develop/lose flowers in the time it takes for you to move less than twenty yards.. :)

Do I get a t-shirt?


BTW, I've got an evil idea on a perspective image - just looking for the right scene I can do it to...
