DSCF3686

Anyone that knows me well knows that I hate spiders immensely. I, on the other hand, was looking for things to photograph so I had to bite my tongue on this one. Chills ran up my spine as I zoomed in on this eight-legged creature. All I kept thinking was “please don’t let him be one of those jumping spiders!” Fortunately for me and my camera he was still because if he had┬ámoved just one bit, I probably would have dropped my camera and had a heart attack. I read an excerpt from a photographer once and it said that in photography you have to get “comfortable being uncomfortable.” Truth be told, I’ll never be comfortable with spiders.
