Another spider at work
Lens: HD DA 55-300 @ 300 Camera: KP Photo Location: Seagrove, NC, USA ISO: 1000 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F6.3

A marbled orb weaver at work on his web. These guys apparently build a new web every day, and I caught him working his magic late in the day. I wish I had a macro lens, but the 55-300 can work pretty nicely as a close up lens. The coloring of this spider is amazing.
