12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Black and White and Silver

Silver Argiope, photographed in the remote Rara Avis rainforest of Costa Rica. I visited this spider every morning during my trip, it had made its web just outside my wooden cabin. It is beautiful in colour, but when I saw it in black and white it was stunning!
