Boris The Spider by mojo1160

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

I can never resist shooting big creepy spiders. This “writing spider” (garden spider is it’s given name I think) has been hanging around my house for several days now building some pretty impressive webs and catching some pretty impressive prey. S/he recently dispatched a full-sized cicada which is not a small insect. And of course I can never see a spider this size without hearing The Who’s classic “Boris The Spider”, right?

    Your captured colours of nature (in this pic) mojo, are absolutely magical!
    Thank you so much for sharing this precious moment with us!
    Smiles from Cobie :-)

  • Thanks very much! It was good that I got him/her when I did, as s/he moved on to what I can only assume were better hunting grounds a few days later.
