spider on a leaf

Continuing with some macro work freon by backyard - this is a common garden spider in Western Australia - Garden Orb Spider from the Eriophora species (I think). This little fellow has made a home in out garden and it is quite funny that I feel of it a bit like a pet. Every time I would water the garden over the Summer it would come out of hiding and drink the water from the leaves and web. I managed to coax it out one day for a longer photo session in good lighting conditions.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 16/5 second F/22.0 ISO 400 100 mm
