WOW. Amazing shot. And boy am I glad I won't be pounced on by her either!
Get a load of those eyes. Love this shot!
crazy eh? -- so great to hear from you too.
Wow, that's an amazing shot! I'm glad I'm farther up the food chain than she is.
right, no like 9 inch spikes injecting poison into your sternum?
The kids'll cause a lot of trouble.
For example, if you're first in line at the Sadie Alexander school's enrollment day, the rest of the parents are going to be very, very angry.
While out walking today, I spotted a still damp worm in the path, being sucked dry from the middle by a yellow jacket. As I told C, unlike what filmmakers might try to make you believe, the worm was ~not~ experiencing some kind of erotic moment of ecstacy.
She is cute, though. Might be better than being a moth being pounced by Roswell.
Wow, thanks for this amazing view of spider dinnertime.
*shuddertwitch* Yeah, I like being high up on the food chain as well. Nature is a nasty, cold-hearted bitch who can be very, very ugly at times. Oddly, she can be her ugliest when she's also at her most gorgeous.
That shot is gorgeous!
I can't totally tell from this angle, but it looks like that might be a cat faced spider. I hope she lives till autumn, because then you won't need a macro lens to photograph her! (Though I do appreciate seeing just how many eyes she has...)
checked them out, they seem to be more crab spider types. this lady is long & think.
Normally spiders don't freak me out so much, but man that picture really got to me. Her eyes are amazing. But I so would not want her munching on me.
She is gorgeous! What a fantastic shot.
Humm, I get a broken image :-/
Leave it to you to make a spider look gorgeous. (Or to photograph her in a way that makes me reconsider the beauty of spiders)
WOW about the eyes. I LOVE how when you enlarge the picture you can see the highlights in all of them.
If this bothers you, do not ever, ever play Diablo III. I watched a friend play for a few hours, and when she got to the spider-filled caverns, I...well, I had nightmares. Big, carapace-crunching nightmares.
On the other hand, Kyle, I think it would more bother you to be killing all of them.
Ridley Scott and H. R. Geiger can step off.
