  3. Spiders are cool with me. Larger ones are carefully removed with a plastic cup if they are in the house.

  4. Agree with your comments Tom. Spiders are beautiful just as anything in nature is if one cares to look. We have a huge house spider lives under our TV and it just stands its ground if we meet it. Great photo.

  5. “Live and let live” is a good motto to have. She will soon attract a mate and carry around dozens of little babies on her back. I recently read that the fear of spiders and snakes may be innate rather than learned. Hmmmm….

  6. Why is it that so many are afraid, me included. I don’t mind the little guys but the bigger they are, the louder I scream lol I think it’s because they have eight legs and I have two. A bit of jealousy going on here!!

  7. 🙂 There are, Dorinda, many factors that tend to make people afraid regarding spiders. Halloween decorations and Little Miss Muffet nursery rhymes sure contribute. Like snakes, one can unlearn a lot of the dread that we have regarding them and see them as really beautiful creatures. I really miss Steve Irwin, who was also such a champion for snakes and spiders, asking people to see the real beauty that is there!
