Natural Design

**Getaway Magazine Winner: Best Photo August 2011**. "Natural Design". There’s a bird hide in the Kruger National Park that allows visitors to the hide to get out of their car. As I returned from a rather uneventful breakfast at the bird hide, I caught site of a speckle-breasted woodpecker. As I started to photograph the persistent bird as it tried to drill a hole in a tree stump – I noticed this brightly colored spider masterfully weaving its web. Against better judgment I spent a fair deal of time outside my car photographing this spider – and as the light streamed through the dense foliage – it lit up the spider and its creation.
