Bugs: Spiders

I never set out deliberately to photograph spiders it was rather that, along the way I took photographs of spiders on orchids and other plants when working with a macro lens in the field. Numbers of images accumulated and a slight arachnophobia evaporated as I discovered the innate beauty and intriguing nature of many of the species. The bulk of the images depicted in this portfolio were taken in the wild 'garden' that surrounds our home in central Italy.
