Who knew so many "ladies" on here were afraid of spiders.....:lawl:

Great shots of it though, I like spiders, I like most animals/bugs. Never seen one with those colours though. I assume that was a female, only because of the size. Nature is truly amazing.

What he's really saying in that 2nd pic is..


"Mah cawk is this big"

Or..

"$5 Footlong" ?
lmao..good one
its a defense mechanism for certain spiders, usually the small ones, to change colors to mimic their surroundings so says my girlfriend
Yeah apparently with these crab spiders they change colors according to the flower/plant they live on. The baby ones were pretty cool too, same colors just a lot smaller.

I was trimming the bush down and my mom spotted it, thank god otherwise they would have heard me scream like a girl. I ran inside to grab the cam and thankfully it stayed put. These were hand held. I actually had enough time to get my cam, take pics, run inside, load them into photoshop & check them out. I ran back with the tripod but as I was setting the pod up it ran off.
:eekwtf: did it try to bite you?? :icon_axe:
Hell no I ain't getting that close, I was skurred it was a jumper lol..

:rwerd: if it cant kill you/bite you/give you an std...theyre not that bad.

people should only be scared of things that are deadly, like poisonous snakes and such :lawl:
