Spidey - Black and White Weekend

I don't like spiders, but it's not poisonous or very big, and I really liked the pattern on it.  Even something icky, can in fact, be beautiful.

I really don't like spiders AT all BUT...that is a gorgeous spider! She looks like a heart with diamonds studded on her back! Wow!

That is over the top! Amazing details.

I captured some shot a spider this summer. I did a 4 second night exposure with a flashlight that came out interesting.

Funny how many people share my feelings about spiders, and I agree with MsDewberry - only my camera! I'm glad you showed this one though, it's like an intricate jewel. Beautiful photo.

Karen...Thanks for the visit. Your spider is something else. I followed one for several weeks this past summer. Would stop on my way home from school and shoot him. He was absolutely fascinating. I do not like them, but they certainly interesting. This is a great shot. Love it. Genie
