Two Spiders

I haven't posted a spider in a long time. The last spider I posted was in October. Here are a couple of recent ones.

The interesting point about this spider is that I shot it on Crane's Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts on the sand. It blended in very well. It seemed to follow me around, perhaps taking refuge from the plovers.

When I saw the heading, I just had to dash over to see this ..... Steve taking pictures of spiders? My goodness!! What is this world coming to? I am just teasing you Steve. :)

They are super pics too especially the second one. :)

really nice photos......the first one sort of gave me the willies, but now I'm over that and he's really cool. Love the sand as much as the spider in the second shot!!

I don't like spiders. They give me the heeby jeebies, but I like these photos and the spiders, too. Great eye finding these, especially that last one in the sand.

LOL, Joan, yah, I'm getting out of my comfy zone.
Hi Kelly, Eve and Rene. An artist wants to create an effect. I'll settle for willies, chills and heeby jeebies.

Good for you Greg and dAwN! I like spiders too, to at a distance. I really like jumping spiders.

Hi Forstal, I'm glad you take the time to stop by!
Yes Kelly and Jenny, this is my favorite beach.

I saw a bunch of these spiders at Crane's Beach this weekend and they seem an odd insect for the coastal area. And frankly, kind of creepy!
