I found this little guy fighting with a spider yesterday morning on my front steps. Unfortunately he did not survive but I used him to take some pics. I'm not sure how successful I was but I was trying to think about these shots as a series. All comments welcome.

I like how you decided to go B&W- you've done a great job with the lighting and shadows!

thanks Adam, to be honest I had to convert them to B&W to save the images, because I was using an old worklight for lighting which made the colours really harsh. Luckily I do like them better in B&W.
