Spider on Exhibit*

Original photograph by Gary Feather
The image of this spider was captured in the Lower Town Arts District in Paducah, Ky. This spider was spinning its own exhibit between the glass and the screen of a window at The Stranded Cow cafe.

I thought the color, form and geometry captured was stunning. The gauzy web is visually spectacular and the spider's body is almost translucent in the light. Beyond the spider's web and the grid of the window screen, the brightly muted pastels of a Kentucky landscape offer a luscious backdrop to this portrait of one of God's truly amazing creatures.
