    Um- Creepy spider, but excellent macro photo of it!

  • Thanks Michelle :) He was a bit too tiny to the eyes to look intimidating when I spotted him :)

    I don’ t know, Jason. I am leery of anything other than what we call Daddy Long Legs spiders. Something bit me a few years back, and my leg developed a terrible abscess and I had to have surgery to clean it out, had a hole in my leg I had to pack 2 times a day for 3 weeks. It was very painful!

  • Wow Michelle, I can understand you being apprehensive! I suppose if such had happened to be I’d be the same. What kind of spider was it do you know? One of those white tailed ones that basically kill your dermis? I remember hearing once that the daddy long legs (we have them here) are actually one of the most venomous spiders in the world, but their fangs can’t open enough to actually bite.. though I suspect this is just a bad urban myth :)

    Wonderful macro shot. Spiders make such interesting subjects if your game enough to get in close to them. Congrats on your feature, well done Jason.

  • Thanks Wayne – I agree mate, and I haven’t had an issue with them yet so until then it doesn’t bother me :) Cheers mate.
