Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Just at dusk tonight, I almost walked into a spider web under construction. This October spider was going in circles round and round her web, weaving her strands... got the camera and flash and took a number of shots. This one even seems to show a face.

Thanks, Dianne and Gary! It sure gave me a start when I saw it on the computer monitor, because in the dark, I was shooting almost blind and could just barely see the spider clearly enough to focus on it. What looks like a face is actually mouth parts, but it does look like Charlotte on her web, doesn't it? I did not draw the face in or manipulate the photo in any way, just adjusted saturation and brightness/contrast, plus took out a couple of dirt specs on the element, as I usually do.

I ought to have added that the shadowy effect is due to the spider's rapidly moving legs, a relatively slow shutter speed, and very brief flash.
