Daddy Long Legs on old bubble glass


For years I had idly plucked these spiders from the windows above our toilet without seeming to make a dent in their numbers. One day I noticed a stray beam of sunshine being refracted by the window’s 90-year-old bubble glass, and a spider was suspended above the rainbow. This is a ‘straight’ shot of the phenomenon, with no manipulation other than a 90-degree change in orientation.
