That lady has some pretty useful fangs tucked away, Carol.
Another wonderful set.
You must be knee deep in bugs in that garden.

Brilliant pin sharp detail in these Carol, it is a good job you did not spot 101 of these as they'd have given the arachnophobes on here nightmares for days to come!Tongue

Carol!! I'm trying to eat my breakfast!!!! Tongue (Wink)

Actually HE is rather handsome, even if he does look like he's trying to get you!! (If you look by his 6" fangs you can see his pedipalps).
You are a very brave lady and have manged to capture 3 gorgeous, detail filled images.

She is gorgeous and you have done her full justice with these wonderful shots. We had one of these in the Spanish property once and when we chased her out it sounded like tap dancing on the tiled floors.

You obviously love small critters, Carol, so it's a shame that a lot of us dislike spiders. I search the bedroom every night before going to bedTongue! But there is no doubt about your photography expertise because these are all amazing. V3 has to be my favourite for that unusual pov, and the way the spider looks to be lurking ominously.
