Can I take your plate, or are you still working on July?

It’s time for the month-end abstract so, hurry up.

backlit spider web with iridescent diffraction
This month we have a grab shot as I was wandering around the neighborhood pond waiting to see if the beavers were going to show. Looking towards the setting sun, this spider web was backlit brilliantly and I had the long lens affixed, so I fired off a couple of frames hoping to nail the focus tightly enough. This frame not only had the focus, it also captured the diffraction from the gossamer strands (which I admit I shamelessly boosted a little in saturation because so there.) And I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I’ve already confessed to heinous crimes for which Mariska Hargitay will be hunting me down, so I’ll just pile on and say that the laser beam that the web is anchored to is instead a strand of fishing line, because too many fisherman cannot entertain the idea of not casting from underneath tree branches. You’d think this wouldn’t be that hard to grasp…
