Yes, it’s a spider. No, it’s NOT a huntsman 😉 I’m still not that brave.
I’m fairly certain there will not be many people who like today’s pic. For that I do apologize. However, this is what I done this morning, stalked tiny bugs. So this is what I give you.
Anyone who knows me, also knows I have an unnatural fear of spiders. With that being said, and I hate to admit it…I think they photograph really well. Maybe it’s all those eyes! Who even knew they had so many?? And facial hair? I wonder if it’s an indicator of age, because his/her’s is white!?
In any case, I’ve been sucked into the world of macro now and become quite obsessed. I love catching the tiny details that can’t even be seen with the naked eye. The spider above was only the size of a regular house fly, as indicated in the top picture. Both pics are of the same spider. The sun wasn’t out for long this morning, but I was lucky enough to have a bit…which cast a really nice shadow directly in front of him. He was dining on a tiny ant, even though it’s out of focus as I was focusing on the eyes and front legs.
I promise to make tomorrow’s pic something nicer. Day 4, over and out.
