Your Best Shot: Michelle Alton | Insects & Spiders
Shot mostly between the tomato plants at home in Yardley, PA during June and July of 2011. For the tiny spiders, all shots were hand-held (couldn't get a tripod close to them) with either my Tamron 18-270 zoom lens or my Canon 24-105 lens, with one or two extension tubes attached.

I was hoping to see courtship and egg cases, but husband was restaking the tomatoes and did not see the spiders and webs...and he probably killed them all inadvertently. I felt a mother's loss!
