I got out yesterday, intending to visit the botanical/zoological garden in Hong Kong but it dumped rain so found a nice wine bar instead! I did get out for a brief urban safari this morning. Saw some great spider!

Gorgeous iridescent spider. I couldn't see how pretty it was while taking the pictures:

Another pretty spider:

Spider #2 looks like it has built-in stereo speakers. Does it blast its prey with sound?

Great Egrets

Thanks for hosting, nosliwmit.
Ninety great egrets roosted in a wetland in Midland County, Michigan. I captured images in the evening with a monopod-mounted K-S2. Some including this image were captured with a 500mm mirror lens.
