Photo-A-Day #909 10/04/07


Today I was leaving to go to my comic book shop to get some of the books that I still collect and as I was leaving the house I ended up walking by the bushes and saw a a large spiderweb. The spider was also very large. I didn’t have my camera with me either. I know I was violating the photography rules because I should have it with me all the time. So I was lucky that the spider was still there when I got back. Actually it wasn’t but I tickled the web with a caterpillar weed and the spider flew out tot he middle of the web. Knowing a bit about behavior of arachnids helps me take some cool shots. These are all of the same Spider from multiple angles.

  1. Ewww! …. Well…awesome picture… disgusting subject matter!

    LOL. I’ve like deathly afraid of spiders, kinda embarrassing for a guy to admit that but wow. I mean, like I totally freak out if one lands on me or is close to me. I got mad at my boyfriend for letting one create a spider web across the door frame for his back door, he looked at me and said it caught the flies and other bugs from coming in. *shakes head*.

    I also live in Texas so I’m always afraid I’ll come into contact with a Brown Recluse, ugh. That freaks me out, such a dangerous spider.

    Anyway, nice picture. 😀

  2. Thanks Mike. I am a bit fascinated with some spiders. We have a few of these big guys out in front of the house. This one was about the size of a small walnut. And it moves real fast.

    Spiders will most likely leave you alone. I know it is an unconscious reaction and many people are scared of them but they really won’t hurt you. The Brown recluse, well that is another story.

  3. That was a totally unconscious subject choice. Wow, that is funny. Or was it unconscious. Was Spider Pig in my subconscious?

  4. How beautiful! This is definately one of your best ones yet. 🙂 I’m glad to see someone else can admire the beauty of arachnids instead of immediately hunting for bug spray or a shoe. I live with one arachnophobic whose mission in life seems to be to hunt them all down and kill them. 🙁 Do you by chance know what kind of spider it is?

  5. Thanks Joana,
    I wish I knew what kind it was, however I bet someone who visits will be able to identify it. That is usually what happens to me. It is a big one though.
