Great close-up shot! Is it a cobweb plant?

obviously an umbrelliform, but no idea which one, mate biggest is giant hogweed, but not sure of the lesser sized ones, my knowledge of plants is as big as that of cameras!!!=very small! b¬[?

We went back to Newsham Pit Pond yesterday 'cos I guessed the Teasel was about due to flower. Teasel flowers are the biggest let-down!

This was the only worthwhile photo I took. It was quite windy and macro focussing needs to be quite precise, so I was holdong the camera with one hand and the stalk with the other. Thank heavens for Image Stabilisation!

mmm, I learn something on every one of your pics, does that mean I was brain empty? Probably!!

Thanks for the talk-through, you got a good shot-DESPITE THE WIND1 (which does bother me sometimes, blows me off course (that's off route for you guys over the pond!!)

I know what you mean about teazel flowers! they are miniscule!, although there are easily at least 1'000 on each head! But wait until they seed up, the Goldfinches love them, they flock like charvas at a burger bar!

Presume you are popping to Whitley tomorrow for the show, it is forecast nasty, so I might give it a miss:-(

Cheers , Mike b¬)

I am returning to work tomorrow, so I will be driving through Whitley, but not past the site. :(

Mike: When I got back into photography and joined Pano, I realised I had forgotten a lot of the techniques. While browsing this site I discovered Larry Workman QIN's Thursday Photo Tips and they have helped me remember what I had forgotten and a load of new stuff.

There is an index of the tips here.

You might find it interesting.

Thanks Kat.

Ha ha ah, what a classic title! goodness, I was about to say that it's like a cobweb factory plant, and i glanced up at the comments and saw that Mike had beaten me to it in that idea. i have never seen anything like it. It's just exquisite, isn't it? It's a very fitting title for such an amazing plant and such a very good photo!

cheers, Sue

Maybe there are some spiders that just can't weave and this where they come to buy ready-mades. Thanks for visiting again Sue.

Do you ever sleep? :)

Sue Allen on September 1, 2008

You're very welcome, and the answer to your question is....nope!

That's a lovely idea, about the spider readymades. I shall have to show that photo to the kids. Cheers again, Sue
