Little spider

Little spider

I'm not afraid of spiders, certainly not little tiny ones like this. I
have a friend who is so afraid of spiders that she can't sleep
if she knows there's one in her bedroom and her children
have inherited (learned) her fear of these creatures. Funnily
enough, I don't like Daddy Longlegs and my son is afraid
of them so maybe I've passed on my dislike to him.
Another miserable day here with rain, rain and more rain.

Nikon D90
1/320s f/6.3 at 50.0mm iso400 full exif

A very nice shot of this fascinating little creature, especially against that wonderful background.

I have no fear of them - I just don't want them around me :-)

I went through a stage where I dsidn't mind them (as long as they didn't build cobwebs all over my place in which case they'd be escorted outside) because they disposed of bugs that I found more objectionable. However we have some really nasty ones down here and since I can't always be 100% sure which ones are or aren't, I zot them anyway. I like the strong sharp vertical band on the left in contrast with the soft but equally colored area on the right; makes for a good backdrop.
