Spider in rice field, Gyeong ju Province, South Korea

While on an early morning walk in rural Gyeong ju Province, South Korea in 2008 I spotted this colourful spider near the pathway beside a field of rice. I didn’t get closer than my telephoto lens would allow!


Spider over Seoul

Outside the Samsung Leeum Museum of Modern Art in Seoul, Korea stands this giant spider statue, Maman by French-born American sculptor Louise Bourgeois. The sculpture, which resembles a female spider, is over 30 feet high, with a sac containing pure white marble eggs. It is a very imposing item and my wife Valerie was able to capture it against a beautiful September evening sky with the city buildings behind catching the last hints of  sunlight.
