Sign of the Cross. (2/2)


Continuing from yesterday, this is a ventral shot of the same juvenile Argiope spider.

You can make out the the spinneret of the spider, the source of all its silk, coloured red at the tip of its abdomen. The spider also seems to be paralysing and killing a hapless prey, mostly a fly of some sort, one that has been completely trussed up.

Metadata Canon Powershot G11. ISO 80. f/4.0 at 1/80 second. Edited using Picasa 3.8 and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Taken in November 2010 at my workplace in Bommasandra, Bangalore, India.
