Itsy Bitsy Spider

Over the course of the past few weeks I have found myself drawn to bugs, which is rather funny since I go running and screaming anytime something comes flying past me. Oh, and don't let me find a spider in my house because his time on earth is limited. I will find a shoe and snuff him out quickly!
Having said that, I have recently realized that these small creatures are quite fascinating and even more appealing as a photography subject. There's something about these tiny creatures in their natural habitat (which is anywhere outside my house) that I find intriguing.
During a visit to my in laws a couple of weekends ago I spent a considerable amount of time in their garden. As I was photographing this flower I didn't even realize the spider was there. The next day, as I was viewing the photo's from the weekend, I spotted this guy!
Aren't we lucky that Mother Nature provides us with a world of opportunities?


  1. Yes!
    We all belong to the same Planet!
    I don't like bugs and such in my apt. either, but I don't have the heart to snuuff & crackel, just can't do it!!
    I vacume them up, get a napkin and throw them out down stairs. I never kill a cricket! Not Jimini!!
    Besides, in Asia, they are good luck, just outside

  2. Oh My Lolie ~
    That's proof that you're a sweetheart! Won't even harm a bug! Wish I could say the same, but I can't. I will take them critters out in a New York minute!
    You're a doll!

  4. I have a rule with the bugs in my apartment, you don't bother me, and I won't bother you. I consider coming in arm's length as an ivasion of my space, so they get squashed, but they have been respecting that lately, LOL
