A break in the tree line at Yatton Park allows a good view of the Waipuna Salt Marshes and there is a walking track that takes people from Fraser St Reserve to Yatton Park along the marsh line. We did the walk the other day as a family and I was quite suprised to find that the walk from the main road to the marshes is only 15-20 minutes. I did it by myself when I first got my camera and it took nearly an hour because I stopped and photographed every second plant and interesting shaddow I saw! This time however I was being rushed    hurried encouraged  by the rest of the familyto keep walking so I had to keep my camera in its bag for the most part!

Copyright Lisa Sarsfield 2009I did sneak in a couple of view shots and one or two of the marsh grasses. I didn’t do this part of the track when I walked it by myself but now I can see I will have to go back again once the kids are back at school!

I am working on a series of black and white photographs that will include a different compostion of this photo. It looks amazing in black and white! Quite mysterious. I am not sure what to do with my series yet, I may submit them for the end of term exhibtion at ‘The learning Connexion” the art school I am studying towards my diploma with or I may add them to my collection on my creative photography blog “nest eggs” or maybe do both! Either way I will keep you posted:)

Amongst all these beautiful flowers I found the most beautiful spiders nest ever!

I took quite a few photos- I was totally impressed by it! Most of the nests I have found are so thick you can’t see through the web or they are made from much less colourful plants. If I was a spider I’m sure I’d  be quite happy to have a palace like this!

From these photos I would say that city dwelling spiders enjoy the same accomodation as their country counsins:)

Strangely enough for all the nests I didn’t actually see a single spider!
