  • Thanks Lori! Can’t see it in this shot, but he has quite a pair of fangs. It’s amazing how fast he moves too!

    amazing detail – awesome!

  • Thank you Barb…..had a devil of a time getting my kids to have enough patience to watch for him, but after he came zipping out they thought he was the coolest thing. :-)

    Have to admit that this is a great shot even tho that it terrifies me! LOL

  • Well, supposedly they rarely bite and at most it’s like a bee sting. I’m not planning on testing that theory though. :-) Thank you for the compliment!

    LOL I’m with Dave & Trena! Beautiful image though!

  • Thank you Debi! Luckily with that bug he was working on, he had no interest in me. :-)

    Great Macro Tim. Such a pretty little critter. That colour frame really compliments it too.:)

  • Thank you Ann, he is kinda cute in his own way isn’t he! Whenever there’s some red in the capture…it’s hard not to go with the cherry frame. :-) Thanks again!!

    This is amazing — and since I hate spiders, it is amazingly GROSS. I mean that in a complimentary way!

  • I like them……from a safe distance. :-) It’s really freaky though when you get close enough to see their eyes (which they seem to have way too many of.) Thank you Diane!
