Gossamer Siblings: New life bursts forth on the side of a Bauhinia racemosa tree as a clutch of spiderlings hatch. Like sparks of fire, filaments of silk shoot across the frame while the new borns seem to be suspended in a corner. Infinitesimal as they are, their legs stand out in detail. With warm tones and sharp lines, this fascinating macro image brings the little guys into the limelight.
