Shadowy Spider

Crafty Green Boyfriend took this shot of a spider in my parent's garden last month. Click on it to enlarge it! If you don't like spiders, you may prefer the shadow shot I posted on Over 40 Shades here.

Wow, what an excellent picture! I'm fond of spiders. Used to have a Chilean rose tarantula as a pet before she went to the Happy Cricket Hunting Ground a few years ago.

Dear Juliet, I like spiders very much, BUT only photos of them like this one of yours.

I am trying to really start a debate on submssion matters in my blog.
You are the first one I am inviting to it.

Creepy spiders have creepy shadows, twice the scare. Very nice posting.

The shadow of this Arachnapod makes her double in size. The eight-legged wonder is thinking about her next meal. Looking impressive jut sitting there...

Spiders are OK, as long as they don't string their webs across walkways!

I think the spider's shadow is more scary than the actual. Yikes!

Thanks for your visit. Warm greetings from Florida!
