A bit of a spider-fest recently, so sorry to those that don't much enjoy being unexpectedly presented with in your face images of them. I came across these Walnut orb weavers clustered around a light in an underpass. Dozens of them in a tangle of webs and poking out of crevices. It was really quite creepy – you wouldn't have wanted to blunder face first through their webs – it was about that height!

On the plus side I had a field day trying to photograph them, interestingly lit as they were by the underpass light, though it was actually still quite dark overall so needed high ISO and flash.
