    Wow awesome photo. I am curious too where you took it.

    We have only dull spiders here compared to those!

    Actually, these spiders (there are more than one in the photo) are on my back porch. I suppose the insects drawn there by the light keep them well fed. Despite their rather evil look, they seem to be non-aggressive as I’ve never seen them very far from their web and they made no moves when I photographed them. My research into this type of spider says that web is not sticky like most spider webs, but is actually slick, so the unwary insect who lands on it actually slides right into the waiting spider’s mouth. Pretty cool if you like that kind of thing….

    Cool photo.

    Icky spider.

    I’m not too found of spiders. But I am fond of how spiders eat biting bugs and insects on my porch and in my garden!

    Just found you through entrecard (you’re advertising on my blog!) and let me tell you, I’m impressed with your photography! Enough so that I will put you a) on my RSS feed to get regular updates, and b) on my photography blogroll!

    And for the record, that spider is ICK!

    @condo — Yeah, I like to keep my distance from them myself although I do admire them and appreciate their keeping the insect population down.

    @Linda — thanks! I appreciate that greatly!

    *Shudder* I’ve seen these spiders on Discovery Channel before. Big, ugly fangs that make them have to rear back before biting. *Shudder*

    Nice photo, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice to see as a photo. I’m sure I saw something about them on one of the nature channels and they are very poisonous. Hope you are being careful.

    @haley — I don’t know about the fangs, but possibly. They just seem to hang out on the porch snaring the insects that come to the porch light.

    @Laura — I hope they aren’t poisonous, but I don’t plan on getting close enough for one to bite me ๐Ÿ˜› Thank goodness for 12x zoom ๐Ÿ˜†
