Macro Monday: Caught Off Gaurd

I am a sucker for beautiful delicate flowers, especially those in vibrant red. So when I saw these pretty little roses near a marble mausoleums I couldn't help but snap a few quick macro shots.

However, a subtle movement in the corner of my eye soon caught me off guard when this amazing creature moved.

Needless to say I promptly forgot all about photographing the delicate roses and tried to capture this spider and his fantastic web. If you look just below his front legs it almost appears as if the web is sewn together with a tight but slightly messy cross stitch.
This strong web almost looked like delicate lace.
While I am not afraid of spiders and I find some of them rather intriguing I do like to keep a safe distance. Thank goodness I was able to zoom in some with my lens.

I'm not fond of spiders either, but I DO love photographing their webs. :)) Nice photos!
