Female spider using two of her eight legs to guard her swarming brood of tiny young, in Nairobi, Kenya; around 1980.

This spider secured herself high up inside my living room window and I left her unmolested, to see what outcome this might bring.

After the young appeared, I attached some card up against the outside of the window, to provide a more or less uniform backdrop for this flash photo.

OM-2 with through the lens flash metering; Agfa CT18 colour slide, rated at 64 ISO.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Bravo! Were you using any extension tubes or close-up supplementary lenses, or is this a crop of a larger image? Whatever–nice detail, considering the time and the place–and not at all scary!

      Hi Gary, glad you like it! This is full frame, and I was most probably using auto extension tubes with the OM-2 and the flash. I had a close up lens but can’t recall ever using it that much. A
