Arachnophobes Need Not Visit Here, Some of You Asked for This...

With requests for pictures and some folks doubts about the presence of a spider in the web from the last post, HERE IS THE PROOF!  

Will the fans of spiders please step forward and claim your own? Anyone know what kind it is? 



Writing this post did make my skin crawl just a little.  I am not even immune to the creeps from the spider-kind.

yes, I know......it's a danged spider and I don't like spiders either!!! They can live outside as long as they stay away from me....and that includes weaving webs across the paths that me and Gilly ride on!!! hate spider webs in my face!!!! :-( I have no idea what kind of spider you have there but, you can keep him or her!

A Hobo spider? We had recluse in our finished basement when we moved 4 years ago. Freaked me out, they have been reduced greatly. Sure there are still some around but I think we are safe now!

That one isn't so bad. You should see the Huntsman in Australia. It is their version of the Daddy Long Leg. Huge.

Common house spider, dearie. Often mistaken for an immature black widow female.

Just how close did you get to take that picture???

ODP-Would you like to hear that I got the zoom lens on the camera and stood on a stool like a sissy girl??

Naw!

Well, the real story is that I got about 1 foot away from the web and used the crop on the editor.
