Interesting Photo of the Day: Giant Spider Silhouetted Against the Moon

Nature can present itself in the most unexpected ways. To the photographer’s delight, it can also bless us with a few ‘too-good-to-be-true’ moments. This eerie yet magnificent photo was captured by Simon Christen, who noticed the small spider perfectly silhouetted against the summertime moon:

The Swiss born photographer began his love affair with the visual arts after reading National Geographic magazines as a child. He moved from graphic design to Pixar animation, then urban photography to nature and landscapes.

“My love for nature and adventure has fueled my passion for photography even more. I have been fortunate to travel to some truly breathtaking places around the world, visiting almost every continent.”

Christen explains that his backyard spider friend seems happy and healthy:

“She builds a new web every night and seems to do pretty well for herself.”
