Spider Hole

"The Dallas Arboretum in Dallas, Texas, is my 'happy place' to spend time photographing the flowers and garden critters," writes Your Shot member Fay Stout. "I was fascinated by the webs covered with water droplets on a low hedge in the Women's Garden but didn't immediately see the tiny spiders that were crawling out of the holes in the webs' centers. When I looked more closely, I saw them and tried to capture one with my macro lens."

Stout’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
