I like to explore….
ahhhh! soooo scared of spiders!
Oh noooo! Sorry I did expect I’d be freaking a few people out with this beauty 😉
oh ya but worth the shot! i take it you’re not afraid of those killer arachnids?!
I’m not scared by many things but I wouldn’t like it running across me or trying to kill me all the same!! Haha
no that wouldn’t be good!
but amazing shot!
That is monstrous!!
Love it! Great shot!
Great! Thank you!
Very creepy. Nice colors but creepy. 🙂
I know but it’s not his / her fault….it’s pretty weird-looking but also pretty cool I think 🙂
eeeewwww. I don’t like spiders. But in a photo I guess I can handle it. The black and gray are interesting colors.
What did you do with it after you found it? Just wondering…… 😉
Haha….it was right outside my hostel room on a beam so I let it be…..it was pretty big too – about 9cm across but he had as much right to be there as me so I just went to bed and hoped he wouldn’t crawl under the door in the night!!!
what long legs you have…
all the better to shock you with… 😉
Eeuwwwwww. Great photo though.
I think this is the most common response! Ha 🙂 Thanks
Holy freakin’ moly, that would have given more than a start….you would’ve heart me shrieking on the moon 🙂
Haha, yes he’s rather a frightful little devil but beautiful in his own way :)….I guess!
Great vertical presentation! Love the colors and patterns in the spider and the wood.
Thanks Sheila, I’m glad you commented on the vertical bit because I found this to be by far the best way to show him off 🙂
WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH…..EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKK….Send the medics! I need medics!!!!
Ooops! I hope I don’t end up giving anyone a heart-attack with this one 😉 Haha….I’ve just posted a much nicer one for you so you can recover!
arachnaphobic i am.. brilliant shot:0
Oh dear!! Well thanks for braving it long enough for a lovely comment 🙂 🙂
You must have been fast on the draw with your camera! Spyders are usually quick to move out of sight.
There is a simular looking one here in SW Florida. Bet there’s a few in the garage right now.
They feast on a diet of insects and will leave people alone unless disturbed and hassled by them.
Thanks! Well this little guy was surprisingly calm about me gawping and taking shots so I got lucky…. I don’t mind spiders so long as they stay a reasonable distance – not a fan of them ‘on me’, unless of course they are money-spiders wanting to bring me good fortune of course!
Not familiar with ‘money’ spiders by name but good fortune is welcome anytime
For me too!! 😉
You sure are brave to get that close to this scary little thing! Wonderful shot though.
I found your blog today, and will follow for more in the future 🙂
Ah thank you! Yes I was wary of putting my face too close to him I must admit….thanks for dropping by 🙂
Impressive and beautiful! How big was it? Did you see my giant spider from Australia? ( http://truels.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/scott-thomas-assignment-14-showing-scale-in-photography/ )
Oh good grief!! The shot of it on the window when you’re driving!! VERY SCARY! Yikes! Great shot!! Mine was about 9cm across so definitely big enough! Yours had such a big body too which is pretty freaky!! 🙂
He looks like one of those BBB spiders — Big, Beautiful & Bad. lol
They are fascinating and scary, simultaneously 🙂
Great pic but spiders are about the only thing I can’t handle. It looks as if its about to jump on the lens. Shudder
I think the spider would be even more scary if you rotated the photo 90 degrees clockwise!
Like he’s about to jump on you?!! 🙂 True
Very cool and a little scary. Just gotten back from Australia and very chuffed with not bumping unexpectedly into any snakes or spiders.
G’day mate! Welcome back!! Was it an awesome trip?!
Yes it was thanks, even though it did involve visiting the “inlaws” : )
🙂 Haha…Australia is a pretty awesome place to go for family duties!!
