She looks scary
That may be conditioning that you have absorbed. She really, without prejudice, looks beautiful! 🙂
Ah… that’s the reaction that society implanted. 🙂
Eeep! That is one big spider, and a nice little haiku. 😀
She’s been running around a lot in our heated garage, where my aquariums and birds are. She isn’t afraid of me; i’m not afraid of her. 🙂
Nice one Tom.
Thank you, Mr. Poet! 🙂
You sure do have an interesting cast of critters in your neck of the woods Tom! LOL Do they spontaneously stop and strike a pose for you when your camera is out? 🙂
Like i mentioned to Scifi, this one has been running around a lot (and we get along just fine). 🙂 Spiders are wonderful creatures and too many people are programmed to react negatively toward them.
I’m one of those folks who react because of my phobia! Eeeeeek! 🙂
Great macro !!
Thank you, Leyla! She’s a real beauty! Tee Hee! 🙂
Terrifying and beautiful. Thank you!
Ah, no… magnificent and beautiful! Go beyond that Little Miss Muffet conditioning! 🙂
nothing for people with arachnophobia but nice haiku anyway, Thomas. Have a nice day, regards Mitza
I hope we didn’t make some people scream in terror! 🙂 Like what was mentioned to Scifi, she’s been running around the garage a lot, unafraid of me and vice versa. Good God, i have to watch where i step! Thank you, Mitza! 🙂
I just know if I stepped in your garage she would jump on me!
No! She is sweet and very well-behaved! Our dogs would jump on you! 🙂
Now that would be just fine, Tom.
Arachnophobia is a curable disease!
Spiders are cool with me. Larger ones are carefully removed with a plastic cup if they are in the house.
So good to read! 🙂 I use soft tissue paper an carefully take them outside to be released. In the garage, they are free to mingle! 🙂
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.
That is great! 🙂 I hope the TV doesn’t play a lot of what Trump says… it could kill the spider! … and the whole environment! 🙂
We rarely switch it on and the news is banned in our household and has been for nearly twenty years. I don’t miss it.😄
Good move! 🙂
“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….
Innate doesn’t matter; it is still learned by the species over millions of years. However, one can still unlearn that… as much of it is foolish in this day and age. Live and let live! Yes!!! 🙂
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!!
🙂 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!
Lovely! I love spiders.
