Default Basement Creature

I found this guy crawling in my basement. I'm not sure what kind it is yet.

It wasn't too big - only about an inch long. But it does look ferocious.

I really like the A77 for it's "macro" features - the EVF and LCD are great for enlarging an area for focusing. The ability to use 50 ISO gives some really sharp pictures.

I think it's Antrodiaetidae - Folding-door Spider

Cool shot but it doesn't have enough eyes, I guess the fangs make up for it.

Technically speaking they are excellent shots. Subject-wise...disgusting insect. I hate spiders.
