The weather is damp and the lighting is dim in my backyard today; less than ideal for taking pictures of birds. This makes me a bit crazy when my finger is itching to hit the shutter button! Thankfully, I saw this spider hanging out in my front yard, and he didn’t seem to mind me snapping several photos.
I had to get pretty close to this fellow, and although I find them fascinating, I am not a huge spider fan. I kept having visions of him pouncing from his web (do spiders even pounce?) and landing on me, which would most certainly be followed by a blood curdling scream and my camera getting flung to the ground in my frantic efforts to flick it off me.
Let me give you a closer look.
When he started shifting positions, I decided that we could call our photo shoot finished!
He is rather cool looking though, don’t you think?
