Spider, spider burning bright ..... by 

I don’t often take photos of spiders, being one of the few bugs I prefer to keep at a distance, but this one I couldn’t resist. Obviously the eating has been good this summer as he was a giant. As they live through the autumn, I’m looking forward to seeing just how large he can get, though it will probably be from a distance …….

    What a coincidence. A few weeks ago I was trying to photograph one of these spiders in Europe. But mine didn’t come out that good.

  • Thanks Kasia. I’ve got another similar to this taken last autumn. The colors are entirely different though, blue and yellow stripes. It was hanging up in a bamboo forest of almost exactly the same colors and I came within 6 inches of having a faceful of spider !

    “…I came within 6 inches of having a faceful of spider…” – don’t even tell me. I’m dead scared of spiders even when I take pictures of them…
