Somebody needs to shave their legs.

He has the weirdest eyes! Those little black balls that are barely attached to his head. Weird.

  2. I just hate spiders but love the detail on your macro shots. What lens do you use?

  3. Eeeeeeeeewwwwwww! That is the weirdest spider I've ever seen... not that I've seen that many either.

    That's it; I'm asking Santa for a macro lens-able camera this year! :-)

  7. I think session over lasted longer than I could have stood. Oh my, that is a creepy bug. But still pretty cool. Thank goodness it's not in my house. I wouldn't sleep out of fear it will find my bed.

  17. That is the creeeepiest thing I've ever seen close up! I love my macro lens, too, and I find it funny how invinsible I feel with it in front of my face: I will get up close to creepy crawlies that I would flee from otherwise. I take close ups of bees, which I am allergic to. We get a weird thrill out of nearly microscopic invasion of these little creatures' private domain. Ain't it great!!

    Seriously, these are incredible shots and should be in a biology book.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Eeek! But I enjoy being able to safely, from a distance, see him up close through your photos!

    ReplyDelete
