Great day for spiderwebs!

September 29, 2018

Great morning for spiderwebs in Lewisburg, PA.  Want to take pictures of spider webs? Wait for an early morning with heavy fog then walk around your yard and search for spider webs.

The traditional “Halloween” spider webs are made by Orb spiders. Here are several shots of Orb spider webs that I took this morning.

For the first three images with the brown fence in background, I used a tripod and an ISO of 100.  The last two were handheld with ISO of 1600.  I used my Canon 80D camera with a Canon 18-200mm zoom lens.


I like how the heavy fog has formed large beads of water especially near the bottom of the web.
