I'm no expert on spiders and wonder if this might be of the same type.

I took it in 2005 since my son had found it running around and wanted me to find out what kind of spider it was. How does a father tell his son that small harmless insects scare the living daylight of him? I couldn't...

This is taken with a coolpix 4300.

Hey Simon - you are becoming a macro-buff and spider-expert i see!

Having no experience myself and having no wish to try macro, and certainly not these eery, creepy creatures, I appreciate the spider-shots for their photographic quality - they really are exquisit, IMO.
Well done!

P.S.: That last one in # 13 is a pice of art!

I like spiders. They eat the pests, and leave large things alone. I once released a female Wolf spider with egg case in my roach infested building, and within a few weeks, no more roaches. I had to tell the landlady to discontinue spraying for a month before I released her. Unlike roaches, they have no immunity to chemicals. Once they cleared out the pray, they left, although a handful remained.

Sure their creepy. But until they come up with a mechanical spider that eats roaches, I'll enjoy the spiders.
