Terrific capture Rob! All of the details of the web are displayed very well from this angle.

Nice shot. It is rare to find a web in such good shape and with nice light.

The webs were very strong to be able to withstand the breeze on the bridge! I gather that the spiders were nocturnal.

Nice shot. Love the billowing of the web in the wind, giving those beautiful iridescent curves. Must be a fairly new web, or this spider is not getting much business, as the web is in fine shape. Anyway, the spider has given you a great image to capture. Perfect lighting. Thanks.

I love the angle and that this gives a different perspective from shooting straight on...

Nice shot !

It was still very early in Spring, so there weren't a lot of insects about (except for sandflies with annoying bites). The wind made it tough to focus on and catch without blur.

Thanks! It was also a question of what angles were possible on a narrow suspension footbridge, but I needed the dark background to highlight the web.

Thanks! Me too, since I'm not a morning person.
