Hope everyone's having a spidery Sunday! Check out the legs and abdomen on this beautiful orb weaver from +Ben Frewin. (Only in biological nerdery can you say "Check out those legs and abdomen!" without sounding creepy.)

And another jumping spider for Spider Sunday, this time a gorgeous study in the little jumper's beauty, on both black and white, from the master of fine detail, +Seth Burgess. Just gorgeous!

Thanks for the share +Kimberly Hosey!  I'm not so sure about being a master of anything, but I do appreciate the kind comments :)

Check out this awesome black and white shot of a cross spider from +Steven Spence! The orb weaver is gorgeous, as is his image, PLUS he offers some spidery poetry from Bill Watterson!

Hope you're having a super #SpiderSunday !

#SpiderSunday  (+Spider Sunday +Lerato Majikfaerie +Kimberly Hosey )
A Sunday post that lets me combine two of my favorite things: wit and nature. In this case, Bill Watterson ( Calvin and Hobbs ) provides the wit:

Like delicate lace,
So the threads intertwine,
Oh, gossamer web
Of wond'rous design!
Such beauty and grace
Wild nature produces   ...
Ughh, look at the spider
Suck out that bug's juices!

Below is a black and white portrait of the lovely little cross spider that I met yesterday while mowing the grass. Unfortunately, I had to break her web in order to get where I was going, but I made sure she was safe.

Also, I thought Black and White might be a bit less threatening for some of you than seeing her in full color. Sort of a "distancing" effect, because it looks like in an old book. my hope at least.

Have a great Sunday! 

P.S. the picture is large enough that you should be able to zoom in a bit.

Love the front legs on this jumper captured by +Seth Burgess. Jumping spiders are the best! :-)

Jumping Spider (Hentzia palmarum male)

Huge front legs in this guy.  This is a 3 image focus stack to get both that front leg and the eyes in focus - I could have used a few more to get some back legs too.  And I wish I'd cleaned the surface prior to shooting too - lots and lots of dust.  And maybe a better background for reflection.  Oh well, it's still a neat critter even if the photography isn't what I'd hope for.

Figured Easter is a good a time as any to resurrect my G+ presence and observe #SpiderSunday ! Easter Spider says she hopes you have a very happy Easter, and maybe don't taste her eggs. :-)

These little guys are way smarter than web builders. They have great vision and will interact with anything that comes within range. Like little aggressive guard dogs. Point a pencil near them and they face it and lift their front legs "You wana piece of dis?"

Our sky is pretty impressive. I have such a huge backlog of these I haven't even gotten to yet. "Hey, you're missing the sunset!" is a sure-fire way to get me or my son off our butts any evening.

And one more for #SpiderSunday ! Cucumber spiders must know how nicely pink complements their green color, so this one posed accommodatingly for +Jitte Groothuis.
