Spider - with Lunch!

Always show the you in you that makes you the you that you are. ~Chidinma Obietikponah

I know this shot may creep some of you out. A few years ago it would have creeped me out. Now I find it fascinating how the little creatures of the world go about their daily business - just being themselves.

Taken at the Izaak Walton Park - Christiansburg, VA - 05-21-11

missing moments said...

I know!!! My lens opens up a whole other world that I use to overlook in my busy moments.

Great photo!

the circle of life, captured beautifully.

i agree with missing moments, my camera has shed a whole new light on the world and challenged me to see things that never interested me before.

Great shot! And perfect timing because yesterday I saw a jumping spider carrying a fly on one of my peony buds. Very neat!

I agree with missingmoments and Debbie.
I saw my camera the other day and thought what a blessing it is and how it has helped me see the world in a new way and it helps me to seek out and enjoy the beauty that surrounds me.
Nice post and fantastic photo.

Oh!! How talented you are. Just cannot get over these photos. I gasp at each one. The beauty is beyond words. I want to see more and more and more. Excellent job. Just brilliant.

Am curious what camera/lenses you use. Thank you for sharing your work. Made my day. Robin

Cool close up! I just had a DOH! moment when I saw Christiansburg in the tags for this post. We live in Wytheville. It's a small world.

Yes, we camera junkies become hardened in our attitude as we watch nature be itself....fascinating even when a bit creepy:-)
