We are not spider parents yet, BUT.... [Jun. 7th, 2012|10:17 pm]
kyle cassidy
While checking for our spider-babies today, trillian_stars found a NEW spider-sister -- this one in her elaborate web, in hastily repaired tatters after a massive battle, feasting upon some ... something she'd captured -- you can pretty clearly see her fangs engorged in it's shriveling husk.

The world is such a terribly fearsome, unforgiving place if you're a quarter of an inch long. I'd rather get shot in bar fight than have something like this pounce on me in the dark. I suddenly really understand just how lucky I am to have been born near the top of the food chain.

Clickenzee to make into a gigantic radiation-enhanced spider

Thanks to trillian_stars for being the voice activated light stand.

Wow, that's an amazing shot! I'm glad I'm farther up the food chain than she is.

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.

*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...)

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.

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.
