A Tiny Spider for Nature Notes


I often come across spiders of all sizes amid my plants But some time ago as I was about to pluck some basil leaves, this small black and white spider jumped on a leaf giving me a few seconds to take this shot. This image has been cropped because the creature was so tiny. I was startled to see this shiny black spider...I'm more used to seeing the grey ones. It's a good feeling to see or notice anything new in one's surroundings. A garden, no matter how small, brings so much joy in these little discoveries.

Terrific capture and while I don't always think of spiders as beautiful, I do think this one is! Hope your week is going well!

To jest wielkie zdjęcie malutkiego pająka. I ten pająk patrzy na mnie, ale ja go się nie boję :-). Pozdrawiam. *** This is a great photo of a tiny spider. And the spider looks at me, but I'm not afraid of him :-). Yours.

Well, I clicked him to get a better look, ick!! I am really scared of spiders, and this ones eyes!!! But maybe if he was tiny it wouldn't have been so bad, though he looks like he could really bite! You did get a really good clear shot, though!! You are always at the ready!!! Thankfully for all of us!

Oh, he's cute! Reminds me of a baby owl (a little bit).

Nice to find new creatures in your garden. And that was a perfect shot!

Hi Kanak, it's good to be back :-) Thank you so much for the New Year wishes you left on my blog and I do hope you and your family have a very happy and healthy 2012.

What a delightful little creature you discovered in your garden, those beautiful eyes. I wouldn't want to be its prey though!
