Spiders in the Chestnut Forest

Well, the forest is not really called like that and the chestnut season is almost over anyway, but I liked the title. It was a beautiful October Saturday and I went to the woods of Bilogora to pick some chestnuts and just enjoy the walk. There were some common spiders around, too.

As the night came down, the Moon rose.

A tiny spider on my window, backlit by the Moon (hopelessly out of focus, of course).
