The Halloween spider are out and about. This is the only time of the year we get some big spiders. This one wasn't really big, about 3/4" including legs, but they will get bigger. The best thing is, they will sit still while you take their picture.

Nice shot tcook and very detailed. Is that just the FZ50 or did you use macro lens?

Great picture. I don't know about macro lens but the only way I would take this picture is with maximum zoom and maximum distance

Excellent! Wonderful detail. Are you saying some spiders are out when it is really cold? I have yet to see any. )

Thanks everyone for your nice comments.
Don, I was using the Nikon 6t which allows me to stay a further from the spider and get the magnification. They are harmless but just get a little nervous if you get to close.

Beth, this is just the time of year they appear here. They always become really prevalent in October and November. It may have something to do with the cooler weather but it is not really cold here yet.
