Love the beauty of them in photos, fascinated by their web spinning skills, and still think OMG! when I see them near me - sorry spiders, I just can't cosy up to you... Great photo though, Lori!

spiders fascinate me...but I must admit I get the heebee jeebees, too. this fellow is quite nice looking...but the pic of the female, (I shamefacedly admit) makes my skin creep a little.... lol. so now that we have had our "frisson" for the day!! I have been lucky to photograph only...haven't had a close enounter of the revolting kind so far this season.
