Shots of the Night: A Spider Braves Hurricane Irene

I’m really not trying to become a spider photographer. Spiders kind of creep me out, actually. I had noticed an elaborate web outside the living room window, and for the first time tonight — in the middle of hurricane Irene — I saw the spider responsible for the web, braving the whipping winds and pounding rain. This isn’t the same spider that I shot in my last blog post (that spider was out the dining room window), although I think it may be the same type. This one is larger than a quarter.
