I love the focus in a spider’s face.
I was out in the pasture, feeding the horses a couple of nights ago, and saw this giant out there.
I picked him up a couple of times, and the intensity in his face left me wondering how long I could hold him until I felt his fangs puncture my skin.
But he was actually pretty relaxed.
A cat started to stalk him a short time later, and all he had to do was move a leg, and the cat went running. I guess he doesn’t need to be too aggressive if he gets a reaction like that.
Here’s a couple of other shots, just because I can’t get over how pretty this spider is…
