Flight of the Spider

I was shooting a series of pictures of my cactus and other various succulent plants (those are the only ones that survives my garden!), when I came across this spider.
But instead of shooting from the top and the ground as my background, I did crawled underneath its web and shot it with the blue sky as the background.

I cropped the original to get the impression that I was closer than I really was.
Again shot on high quality mode on macro setting with the auto flash turned-off.

I was deliberating whether to come as close as possible, but wanted that expanse of blue as background.

Probably if it was a red back spider, I would have opted to get a nice shot with its red trademark.

Probably next time I spot one I will!
