I was out trying to get a composition, using the rows of maize stubble as a feature but it wasn't working for me when I noticed these characters .

Were they still alive at the time of exposure or had they been caught in a spider web? I have tried photos like that with live bugs but have trouble with the combination of necessary shutter speed and depth of field.

Thanks Gautam, Scoundrel these are moving up and down in a vertical sort of column, I used manual focus ( I don't think auto would have had a chance ) and high rate shutter trigger ( well fast as a D7000 would go anyway ) no flash these are back lit by the setting sun. Tanks for looking
