Hand-held shot! No VR! I can't believe it turned out this good. I have no idea what kind of spider this is.
I guess this is sort of a companion piece to the previous shot of the webs, huh? Even though I hadn't intended it that way.
I spotted this tiny little spider literally crawling across the surface of the water. Better yet, when I leaned forward with the camera, he saw me and got a little spooked, but obviously couldn't run anywhere, so he just froze. Very convenient. :)
Anyway, I'd like to emphasize that this was a very small spider. Just a baby, presumably blown onto the water by the wind. So, don't be afraid!!! :) He's nowhere near the size of this one here, for instance.
Seen at Horicon Marsh, along the Boardwalk.
