Eentsy Weentsy Spider

Nature makes some amazing things both big and small. I don’t usually play with spiders. But this tiny one got my attention. Barely bigger than a comma on my keyboard, I spotted in near the floor as I was down looking for something. At first I thought it was a piece of dust caught on a cobweb. Then it moved when I blew on it. For scale there is a dime in the corner of the image.

I set the macro lens of the camera and waited for the monster to move around. The tweezers are barely 1/8″ (3 mm).

    Your spotting of such a small being indicates you don’t have that dreaded “aging eyes” condition! Eyes are the second most complex organ after the brain.

      I could go outside and look for one. In fact, along came a rain this morning. The sun has not come out yet to dry up all the rain.
