The September 2012 Photo of the Month Contest is now open!

Not only is the landscape changing, you may be harvesting the fruits of your labors, seeing the green hues of summer change to the vibrant autumn palette, but you will also receive a prize! The beautifully handcrafted apple gourd birdhouse, from havalotta, Equilibrium and BooBooBearBecky, which they created on a recent get-together! Thank you!

I know this doesn't look like much but I've got high hopes for it. This is some sort of a funnel spider that built its web on the latch to my outer chicken coop door. I've been very careful opening and closing the door for a month so I don't mess the little guy up. I'm gonna get a photo of this spider for this contest if I have to sit out there in a lawn chair waiting for him!!!

Ha ha ha.... it was a sucky photo. I know... I'm not entering that photo or this photo which is sucky too but... I'm getting a little closer to catching the little guy!!! It's just that he dodges back under the trim so darn fast I hardly get a chance to get the camera in the right position. I've got a clear shot to him straight down the funnel if he'd just be a tad bit more cooperative!!! BTW.... I missed some really good damselfly shots screwing around waiting for Mr. Spidey!!!!

See how intriguing the little spiders can be? I'm trying desperately to get decent shots of some that got into our building on a rare rainy day last week before any less spidey-compassionate residents have a different idea.

I knew it wasn't an entry, that is the only reason I was teasing you.

...I know you will. I saw your pictures in another thread...and if that is the best you get, it is worth entering, but knowing you, you'll keep trying until you get the "perfect" shot.

Now dry your tears and post all you want.

I went out to lock up the goils and.... Mr. Spidey was all the way out. Too bad it was too dark to do anything. I think this is the way it's gonna go until like October 1st. You can take it to the bank that'll be the day I get the perfect shot of Mr. Spidey.
