    Run ladies...

    A couple (2 actually) big fat spiders. One was sunning his belly. The last one was trying to say something with -that- marking on his back.

    Comments/suggestions always welcome and appreciated.

    You are going to lose friends of the female persuasion with these.

    Nice capture.

    Thanks Peter. Well they have been "captured" so it -should- be safe!

    Brilliant shots Bobo, full of great detail.

    I think my favourites are #1 and #2.
    #2 especially with its clarity and wonderful bokeh.

    They're like a spidery string quartet, no doubt playing, 'Requiem for a fly'

    The title should be "Run ladies... Get your Cameras !"

    Great images and I don't see anything to fear - In fact, I enjoy seeing Wolf and Jumping Spiders about the house, it means none of the other pest insects will be around for long.

    Thanks Mike and Steaphany. Oh, there were flies at the edges of the web lost to the cropping.

    Was going through the shots and thought this might be worth showing.

    Great shots Bobo..Run ladies...

    Hate to have to be the one to tell you this, but odds are quite high that both of those
    spiders are ladies themselves..

    Thanks Mike - really have no idea about their sex. But if you say they are then they are.

    Tommy - the bush was on the side of a path. A couple of ladies were coming up with their dogs and got inquisitive about what I was doing. The thread title was their reaction to the spider.

    John - thanks, the 70-300L. Its MFD at just under 4 feet is pretty good for closeup. The spider pics were taken with a 20mm tube attached.

    And I think my reaction would have been the same as the ladies'!!!
