My latest obsession I’m calling “ARACHNOAFFECTION”
Mabel Orb Weaver and Spiny Orb Weaver that live in my birdcage screen room. Don't be afraid, they're good guys. Hope you enjoy!


The Mabel Orb Weaver is about .5" from tip of front legs to tip of back legs

Attack of the Mockingbird

Twice last week the Hawk was sitting in this tree late in the evening and a territorial mockingbird began attacking. I took a series of 21 photos of the attack, the first photo being the best of the 21. I gave PS a try stacking the 21 and the second photo shows the chaos but not so clearly.

Finally, to make it understandable, I manually placed the mockingbird from the various photos. The mockingbird would return to a pine on the right for a few minutes before making another bombing run, never touching the Hawk. The Hawk was neither bothered nor impressed, never moving, except for turning his head, which I tried to capture by making a composite of his head turning.
