About Today’s Photo:

The Korean Mountain Ash in our front yard was in full bloom a few days ago. I was out taking pictures of the flowers when I came across this little orb spider (I think…) working its way amongst the leaves. Backlit by the late afternoon sun, it glowed amber.

Nikon D600, Sigma 105mm macro lens, ISO 250, f/8, 1/640″ exposure.
