sunrise spider

I went out to photograph the sunrise this morning.   There was mist on the lake, so I thought I had hit the jackpot.  When I got home, I was disappointed with how the landscape shots turned out.  (any advice about photographing mist?  I will post a pic later)  However, on my way off the dock, I spotted the spider in the middle of her web.  Who would have thought this would be my favorite pic of the morning?

Canon 5DMarkIII; EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM; iso800; f9; 1/250

p.s.  While putting my gear away, the lens hood for my macro bounced into the lake.  I yelled “Are you KIDDING ME?” (among other derisive things about myself…and by the way sound REALLY travels across water :-|) Then I rolled up my sleeves, got down on my stomach, held on to the dock railing with one hand, and then scooted out to hang perilously off the dock to retrieve my lens hood.  I probably brought a few of this spider’s relatives home with me on my clothing.  *shudder*

p.s.s.  This is one of my submissions for the WordPress Daily Post Photo Challenge Theme of “Grid”
