Yeees, precious, sick of cute bunnies and fluffy ducklings?
My sis, :iconfrocktarts: called me out to photo this gargantuan (I love that word.....) Black Widow hanging off the building.
~shudder~
If you want a larger version of this for a print, just note me, I will probably move this to scraps eventually.
It's just a spider....

Don't move it to scraps! That's a great shot.

Almost looks like it was a piece of digital art. (hmmm - does that make any sense?) :D

Teehee, I don't believe it! The more 'artistic' shot is getting less of a response, but this one is better recieved. Never fails! ;)
YAnd Yes! It does make sense; spiders have a bizzarre mechanical symetry and form. Even their movement could be computer generated, because it is do even!

Yes, frustrating, isn't it? :D

I think the trick is to figure out how to save yourself a lot of work by going for the "simple" (which are not that simple) shots deliberately.

(gee, I start sounding cryptic like John. NOT a good sign!) :S

Hey, cryptic mean you are explaing the essense of an idea. Overelaborating doesn't give another person trying something the right idea; they try and do what another person who has succeeded has done.
;) Like Aragorn says to Gandlaf 'You still speak in riddles,', always saying enough IS enough.
It encourages people to get sparked with an idea, and then make it THEIR own. :nod:
Okay, Okay, I overelaborate. ;)

Less is more with a shot like this. (Sadly, my camera is almost dead, and most of my spider picture din't turn out at all. )

Cool shot! Too bad the strand of web doesn't stand out more, that would've really made the shot look spectacular. Was it just focus or was it just about invisible?

Thanks! I did try so very very hard to get the strand. It does border on invisble. But alas, my camera is on the fritz again, and I hear a Meat Loaf-ian epic sounding musical curtain call for my brave little camera this time. :( (Inki is price-shopping as we speak...)
Close ups are often ruined, almost half of the spider pictures weren't worth anything. But I think there is one where the strand showed up.....

Sadly, I think my sister did. Fair enough, it was living in our house, and my dad was bitten by a brown recluse. :o
Not pleasant. But today we met a rattlesnake (NOT at our house!) who let my dad virtually walk over it, and it didn't even bother us.
So, I'll keep my house safe from dealy animals, but I won't radomnly kill an animal far enough away not bothering me. :nod:

in nature anything brightly colored that tends to make itself stand out dont approch because odds are it's bite is worse than its bark

Teehhee, yes, spiders man the males of this family turn into screaming girly-men.
We have these huge wolf spiders lives in our bathroom.
Very charming to be in there, and notice a giant spider staring at you while you bath. :o
