Autumn Spiders

 Spiders are one of my favourite macro subjects; they are interesting, colourful and tend not to move around so much.

Yes, the blurry dots in the foreground are also tiny spiders.

Only one spider here!  Can you find it?
 It's in the centre of the web where the lines converge.  The collection of past meals, and even it's own discarded exoskeleton serve to camouflage the spider from birds, particularly as it most resembles bird droppings from a distance.

Here's a closer crop of the spider, it's a bit more visible.
