    Keep that furry thing away from me – how huge, hairy and ugly can ya get. Am sure this spider’s self-esteem isn’t the best in the world.

  • lol. you are so funny! spiders are my phobia but I start slowly to be less affraid about it. spiders are so useful in this world. thank you dear :)

    Great detail and composition! A beauty for sure! Glad she didn’t jump onto you!

  • this spider was very slow and lazy and surely not curious. funny because with photography, I learn more and more about small world under my feet. I notice something about jumping spiders… small ones are very curious, looking at me all the time just like on this picture and the one on my red dalhia if you remember. but big ones are not. before I found that one here, I saw another jumping on rocks area. a little smaller but red bum but with this one facing me, I went back a bit because I didn’t feel safe. nervous spider but not curious. never looked at me… I felt that I was invading his territory.
    thanks a lot Joe ;)
