Photographer's Note

In the Botanical Gardens, there are paths that leads to mini forest. I took one of them and try some luck. As most of the trees are green, hence not much i can play about. Until i look upwards and suddenly saw a spider knitting its net. I want to know in more detail how it was done, hence i use 55-200mm to zoom. As the net was in between two trees and at times windy, zooming at roughly 3metre above ground is quite a daunting task. My neck was tired, but still i pressed on in the hope that i will be capture the knitting moment without using a tripod. And here it is, the fabric-like net from the tail end of the spider was guided using left rear leg for weaving the net to prey on flying insect. As there was a heavy downpour few hours before that, some rain droplets still stick to the legs of this spider.

Feel free to comment.
