I came across this Spider on a web near my place here in Arkansas. I don’t know what type of spider this is and if you do, please let me know by leaving a comment.

I spotted a spider on this wildflower while walking around with my camera. I was on a county road near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. If you look close you can see that the spider is feeding on a tiny insect.

How I Got The Shot – Wildflower With Spider

I was hand holding my Canon EOS 7D Mark II Camera with the Canon EF 100 – 400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/800 of a second at f6.3 and the ISO at 800. White Balance set on auto. I was using single point, continuous auto focus with evaluative metering.


After posting this blog post to Facebook I was told that this flower is a BrownEyed Susan.

The Brown–Eyed Susan is a species of flowering plant in the sunflower family. It is usually seen in old fields or along roadsides.
