I've noticed a lot of these spiders' web about this year, Pam. Any idea what species it is? My efforts at capturing the delicacy were very poor and the images have been deleted.

Nice capture.

No, not sure what they are - we have some in the garden too. I like the way they link everything up with those delicate lengths of web. Look good after frost/rain too :nod:

Just having another look - very good resolution of the single strands of web. Are you pleased with the new set up?

Yes, fairly happy. It's not the camera as much as the lens I'm unsure of. I was told by a guy in a photo shop that they're not the quality they should be for a Canon and said he can't understand why they put them on. But it'll have to do for now. However, it would also be better if I actually used a tripod to take a picture!! :giggle:

Pam - The 18-55 mm EF-S lens is what they call a kit lens and in the Canon range it would not be considered the best, but it provides a very good range - 18 mm (27 mm equivalent for the small sensor) is getting to wide angle and 55 mm is up at about 80 mm for good portrait type work. The problems lie in the quality of the the "glass", but as this shot shows you can get some super resolution. I would look to using the Canon software (DPP) to enhance sharpness on the raw files before doing anything else - this is now normal procedure in the work flow. (Not that this image needs that.)

Cheers
