This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

I found this guy, a large black and yellow Argiope Spider, in a plantation garden.  It is sometimes referred to as a "writing spider" because of the zig-zag pattern it makes on its web.  Shot up close with the Nikon D7000 and 24-70mm zoom lens set to 70mm and f/2.8.  This created a shallow depth-of-field that threw the background out of focus.  Otherwise, the background would have had too much detail that would detract from the spider.
