Milky Spiders

After spending all day following the tracks of jaguars and pumas to the rivers edge, photographing the Milky Way made for a very exciting evening. We briefly lite up the foreground to illuminate the spider but once the shutter closed we would immediately shine our lights behind us in search of eyes moving along the banks.
