Go away, you're botherin' me


This hairy creature ran from its web when I got back out with the camera.



I really, really hate spiders so I'm a little surprised that I got close enough to get these.


Since it seemed more afraid of me, I kept at it.



I have the heebie-geebies now.

Do you?

Excellent close-up photos. If you could only see what is living on the surface of your shin you would really get the heebie-geebies.

Yep, heebie-geebies here. I dislike spiders, but there is something about them that fascinate me. Excellent close-ups.

Yes, I have the heebie-geeies now. But you did get some great close-ups and I love the spider web.

Actually spiders don't bother me too much. Now if I had to look at them close up like this all days long it might be a different story!

Ohhhh I don't like big old spiders like that. It does give me the heeebie geebies! Ugh!

I love spiders now! Well, if the camera is on my face protecting me. :) You got some awesome captures here. Love seeing all the details. And I think he did you a favor by moving off the web and into the green leaves. What great contrast that provides! Excellent images. Bravo.

Yes! Great photos, but OMG I could NOT have gotten that close.

There are some things that look better from farther away. A big old hairy spider is one of them :) Two miles away is my preference.

Loved the web but could do without the the spider that created it.

Excellent web-shot and I do not mean the photo share site.
