Photography Tip - Photographing Spider Webs: "Autumn in Maine brings amazing foliage, but it's also a time when the spiders seem exceptionally busy constructing their intricate webs, and I love photographing them! Early morning is the best time to shoot these webs for several reasons.

Morning dew adds jeweled orbs to the webs, and low light really makes the webs stand out."
