The Spider



When I first went outside, I caught the sight of this spider out of the corner of my eye. To me, a spider that is large enough to cast that visible of a shadow behind it is too much for me.



Getting 'brave', I changed lenses on my camera and went out to zoom in on the spider. I still haven't identified it, because the belly was to me. I don't know what the back of the abdomen looked like.

Any ideas?

I for one am proud of your achievement. Anyone who's as admittedly afraid of spiders as you are is fully deserving of praise for coming close enough to take a picture, even if it was with a 300MM lens. You've done well, as we say in the Army, here's an official "Atta girl".

My fear is/was snakes, still not overly partial to them. I remember the overwhelming grip of fear when my then girlfriend and I went into the Reptile Room at a major Zoo.

looks like a rare Mothra spider to me.

if it's still around, lemme know and I'll bring my 10MP camera up there for a real closeup.

How is your 10MP any better than my 10MP? :)

Anyway, she's moved on to less invasive pastures.

because my 10 MP camera can get a LOT closer than yours.

Really? What kind of lens does it have?

the lens has an operator who doesn't mind getting 6 inches away from the spider.
