i do so hate spiders, but this is totally awesome, all of them... shows every thing I can't see because i will not get close, i call bob to kill them for me, amazing details, and i do see you in the eyes... how close were you to him. i am always afraid they will JUMP on me. my grandmother had spiders the size of a palm of a hand and they could jump about 5 feet... they were fuzzy like these...

Wow. There's not many women that would do what you did. I find most of them are fearful of spiders.

Judy said...

Wow, these are awesome shots!

I was glad to see "the end" at the end. I don't like spiders but these closeup shots are fascinating. I didn't know they had so many eyes! Gross, but fantastic shots Amy!
