Micro Spiders

I recently discovered these two separate bundles of micro-spiders an hours drive from each other. Do you know their “name”? Do they remain this small or grow to be huge? They seem to like communal hugs.

  1. What a amazing shots Michael!!! You can be really proud of these! I am seriously impressed! Must say you also tickled the biological side in me with a bunch of questions as to their grown size, prey and social structure…..

    1. I never really noticed the “small stuff” until I started doing photography again last summer. What is also amazing is how many close-ups I take with my cell phone camera – as is the case with these shots. Of course I then tune them up with photosoftware. The second image with finger as comparison – I was on a ladder 20 feet up, when I spotted this tiny moving clump – so out came the cell phone. I understand that iPhone images are not great, but my Samsung 5 is great. Of course it has a tiny sensor, but still provides 16mp images.

    1. For now, while they are still toddlers. When they get to be adolescents, I will export them to your import/export business. You could make some serious cash if you trained them to dance around your furniture in time to Grease.

    1. Thanks Jane – One of those flukey discoveries that I wouldn’t have noticed if I wasn’t usually looking for image-making opportunities – I usually don’t carry my camera around, so I’m thankful for always having my cell phone – I consider it kind of a “photo sketch pad”
