Creepy Spider by MissyD

Went away for the weekend only to come home and find this spider had made its home on my front verandah.
N.E. Victoria, Australia.
One of the first few shots taken with my brand new Nikon D90, 105mm VR Micro Nikkor.
Many more shots to come!

    “Untitled???” I would have thought “Scarey bleedin’ spider” would have been a goodie…………lol Had a small huntsman in my bedroom last night – soon dispatched him to God……. :)

  • LOL Lozzie… cant do that…..but then again :) I got side tracked on the phone to my mum and didnt put in any details or name when I up loaded it. It was one of the first photos I took with my new baby :)
    Come to think of it, I should have taken a photo of a flower first :)
