This shot was taken through a screen in my upstairs bedroom. The big orb spiders are out and about and this one has found the perfect spot. It has found a lot of prey there and all day was feasting away. And no, I wasn't about to take the screen off. You can just make out the screen as well as the web. I like the idea of being able to take the shot without having to really get so close. I know spiders do a lot of great things but don't really like to get too close. I think this one is chowing down on some thing. They'll be gone soon when the window turns colder.
And here's my science fiction book: The Edge

Hard Science Fiction. A fleet of ships think they are going to war with an easy target. They're wrong. Instead of fighting for victory, they'll fight for survival.
Five star review on Smashwords, 4.5 stars on Barnes and Noble:
Review from Smashwords:
Excellent military SF read with some twists added, well developed characters and a somewhat unexpected ending. Written from the viewpoint of a kid who escaped the lower level (literally) of L.A to become an adult fighter "pod" jockey. I look forward to the release of the sequel titled "The Wound"!
