A spider is hard at work building his web in an effort to gather substance along route 59 in Naperville in early September. I shot this with an 80-200mm Nikon F2.8 lens. It gave the subject some room so I did not disturb him during his harvest. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
