Okay, if I'm going to be getting more involved with this board, I need to warn y'all that I have a habit of taking LOTS of bug pictures, mainly because my son loves them, so they're a part of my life whether I want them to be or not! And...spiders can be beautiful. This is a green lynx, she is a good spider because she kills and eats wasps, bees, hornets, etc. I found her in my lavender. CC please!

On a side note, that little spiky ball thing on photo #3 is her egg sac and she was dragging all over the place with her, and if I got too close to it she would throw her legs up at me! Sorry I'm getting all nat geo on you guys, but it was cool!
Ugh...I don't like spiders, but I still had to open. This spider is very interesting! Love #2! Well done!

I LOVE that spider! I am SOOOOOOO into macro insect photography and I have a modest collection of spider photos. One of my favorites is a white lynx spider that was in my garden in 2009. I didn't find one in 2010, not sure why.

Wow, that's a beautiful spider! I am in awe of your focus. I took a pic of a dragonfly, and the focus fell on its back instead of its eyes (d'oh!). And forget about trying to do a ladybug

Ick to spider and DOUBLE ICK to BIG egg sack!!!
Ickiness aside, great photos. Love the fact you can see those little hairs on her legs and the colors are really neat.
