That is actually a beautiful creature. Excellent photo.

Thanks. After I framed and posted it, I went back out to look at him again - its unnerving, but nothing you see here is really visible to the naked eye. Its downright fascinating.

Creepy and cool. How close did you get?

Close enough to see the hair on his chiney-chin-chin!

Omigosh! That is a totally awesome photo, Eric! You've outdone yourself on this one. We can even see all of her eyes. (Wouldn't it be great to know what the world looks like to her?) It's funny, I know a lot of spiders are furry, but in most cases it's really hard to see.

Thank you!

Thanks! I nearly ran into him moving the yard yesterday and when I looked up and saw he was *exactly* what you wanted, I couldn't believe it - first one I've seen this year and he was HUGE. Believe it or not, about the eyes - that was my first thought as well, because despite his size, you really couldn't make anything out with the naked eye :P

Glad you like it!
