Trillian found this darling house spider and her eggs in one of the cabinets working hard to guard our food! She is part of our army. I did a few macro shots of her egg basket too -- looks like we're about to have 50 babies!!! Cigars for everyone!

She's about the size of a lentil, her eggs might be the size of pinheads.






Clickenzee to make into a gigantic radiation-enhanced spider




Clickenzee to see mah babies!






Thanks to whafford for being the voice activated light stand.

Wow. That's serious macro. And you just have to be amazed when something the size of a lentil makes 50 things the size of a pinhead.

House spiders are quite good to have around. I rather like them. As long as they're over there, not very close to me. Amazing macro!

My cat (see icon) is named Spider for her tendency to get into crawl spaces and emerge covered in spiderwebs. She's the only Spider allowed near me.

I'd usually rather have the spiders than the things they eat...

That egg case shot is just amazing! At that magnification, even knowing I'm looking at a spider's egg case, it's hard to believe that's spider silk.

Those photos are AMAZING. And such a pretty spider! We have an orb weaver outside our door who has been there for two months. She eats moths and she has a brown arrow on her back. She's gorgeous.

Let me be the first to say "AHHHHHEWWWW SPIDER!"

Squickiness aside, these are awesome photos. :) Leave it to you to take something that freaks me out and show it in an artistic fashion. Wow.

My first thought-- after the AUGH!-- is, of course, "Can I have the silk when you're done?"
