Spider Hairs

Chapter 64.

Even I am starting to wonder if perhaps I am getting too close. These guys move faster than I.

Hanging out with the Volcano again. Got some shots, but I lurve a good spidey spidey shot.

This guy was massive.
Wow, that is extreme close up, you could reach out and pat him. Great shot!

DO NOT look large, this is only a Point and Shoot...
August 21st, 2013  
Scary too! look at the spikes on his legs! and expression. How big? Brave man . brilliant shot!
August 21st, 2013  
Look at the eyes...you are way too close. But have to say brave shot!

August 21st, 2013  
Glad you lurve this evil monster arcaneae! I'm a girl and don't but appreciate your photographic skills!
August 21st, 2013  
Anyone else see a skull and crossbones when you look at this (even in the thumbnail)?! That means death, Jason. DEATH. Too close! Cool shot, though.

@bobfoto ~ you know you shouldn't tease spiders, don't you Jason :)
August 21st, 2013  
And if you lick it (or get bitten) DEATH. Feeling overdramatic today. Did you squeal;-)?

@redpants - yeah I 'spose....
August 21st, 2013

August 21st, 2013  
awesome macro
August 21st, 2013  
He's scary in thumbnail but kind cute viewed large.

crikeyness
August 21st, 2013

August 21st, 2013  
That is an amazing capture but I was glad there were so many comments already as otherwise I could not have looked long enough to comment...
August 21st, 2013  
He looks sort of like a hairy Alaskan king crab. You are fortunate he didn't carry your camera away.
August 21st, 2013  
Wicked!
August 21st, 2013  
Wow great details of hairy spidy:) cute eyes.
August 21st, 2013  
The patterns remind me of a skull, so double-fave!
August 21st, 2013  
Only too close if you are not using an LCD screen on the back. Otherwise...Eeeeek! I was too close the other day and almost had a panic attack...but love the picture that came of it. :)
August 21st, 2013  
You're very brave,I would run the other way!! A great shot,a super detail!!
August 21st, 2013  
That dude looks indeed massive! Not my kind of animal... ;)
August 21st, 2013  
EEEk, great shot. Did you compete running?
August 21st, 2013  
Cool
August 21st, 2013  
Fav for sheer bravery of what it took to capture such a clear face -- wow!!!
August 21st, 2013  
@amandal - he was okay when he didn't move.

@abhijit - Thanks Abhijit :)

@suebarni - yeah, they're all kinda cute!

@traceyhn - his legs are long enough to wrap around your wrist.

@grammyn - Thanks!

@houdiniem - especially when he shifted!

@acloserlookpbd - Thanks Dawn!

@jannaellen - You should get in earlier!

@rvwalker - I consider myself lucky he left my camera alone.

@lynnb - Thanks.

@snowflakes86 - All 8 of them.

@grizzlysghost - Yeah the skull pattern is coolio!

@geocacheking - have to go look for your shot!

@carolmw - fear is not a bad thing.

@agentzuckerguss - He was a big guy!

@stimuloog - No, was never very fast... better at longer distances.

@johnnyfrs - Cheers John.
August 21st, 2013  
Do you do all of your macro shots inside?
August 21st, 2013  
@taffy - Thanks Taffy :)

@amandal - No, this was on location outside. He was sitting on a chunk of granite.
August 21st, 2013  
@bobfoto Cause I would not bring in skeleton spider to save my life. Good. Here I thought you had fancy granite countertops.:)
August 21st, 2013  
Creepy!
August 21st, 2013  
Oh my that's a horrible hairy spider and you are far too close for my liking!! Great capture though!! LOL!!
August 21st, 2013  
Wow! Incredibly hairy guy. So many eyes too! xx
August 21st, 2013  
Just thought of it. Reminds my of Scar in the Lion King.
August 21st, 2013  
Great close up shot. A bit too close though for my comfort.
August 22nd, 2013  
@amandal - granite emits a carcinogen, so not a great material for inside the kitchen...

@chris17 - speedily it creeps too.

@pamknowler - Thanks Pam!

@psychographer - The eyes and hairs are way cool!

@traceyhn - There's a spider in the Lion King?

@daisy - getting close to the edge of my comfort zone too!
August 22nd, 2013  
Too close...too close...too......
August 22nd, 2013  
Maybe that is why death spider is wearing that skull?
August 22nd, 2013  
oh my- what a BIG spider. awesome shot!
August 22nd, 2013  
Soooo cool and creepy! Great hairy detail
August 22nd, 2013  
@swilde - I was thinking the same.

@amandal - that's right.

@catsmeowb - Thanks Camille :)

@colie - Thanks!
August 22nd, 2013  
love his bearded face
August 23rd, 2013  
@kali66 - everyone loves a good beard!
August 23rd, 2013  
Awesome focus but very yukky and yes you are way too close.
August 28th, 2013  
@kjarn - sorry.
August 28th, 2013  
Mac
Ew. Great shot, but ew. Beard, fur, spikes, eyes ... ack. Is this the Lord of the Rings spider? Oh, and interesting factoid about granite.
August 28th, 2013  
@riverlandphotos - I'm amazed at how so many people want granite benchtops. Its nasty stuff.
August 28th, 2013  
Fabulous wee beastie - great skull costume - obviously one of The Phantom's pets! - Would a polished concrete benchtop be okay? - otherwise I'm back to timber with a marble inset for rolling out!
August 31st, 2013  
@kittikat - they do some nice work with concrete these days.
September 1st, 2013  
Ohmygiddyaunt!! That guy has eyes for teeth.... what an amazing shot, extra point to you for getting so close...
September 8th, 2013
