Perspective Of An Arachnid


Something a little creepy for your Friday the 13th.

I was with a group in the Philippines helping rebuild part of a school that was damaged by Typhoon Haiyan. I saw this little spider climbing on this leaf while taking our break for lunch. I am fairly arachnophobic, so trying to capture this creepy guy was outside of my comfort zone, but I do appreciate a challenge.

I was repeatedly terrified by this 2″ creature when he kept lunging at my lens. I would be trying to focus the lens, when he would jump at me, I would yell and frantically look around trying to discover where this spider had landed; meanwhile, all my Filipino friends and the school children had a big laugh. It was a good bonding experience and a pretty good photo albeit a creepy one.
