In a word, “no,” I don’t love spiders. But I don’t hate or fear them, either. Given that I have posted one other spider (here) and two spider webs (here and here) in this blog in the last month, you should be able to infer my fascination with spiders.
What was interesting about this particular spider is that I took several macro shots of the bark of the tree he/she is on before I even noticed him/her (how do you tell gender?). The other interesting thing about this spider is that it didn’t move at all, even though my lens was only inches from it. Sleeping? Dead? Dormant? I can’t say.
