E is for…

WARNING…If you do not like spiders just click away now.


Okay, you were warned.



E is for Eek!

brown recluse

This bad boy was climbing on my wall Friday night.  I went to click the light switch in a dark room and there he was, 3 inches from my hand.  This guy was the second one I saw that day.  I wanted to make sure he was what I thought he was so I grabbed a giant food storage container and trapped him.  Then I threw it in the freezer.

Saturday I took him out to make sure it wasn’t just a middle of the night freak out.  Nope.  I was right.  It is a brown recluse. 

The crazy photographer part of me came out and I had to photograph him.  So the white specs on him are actually frost.

Oh and animals were definitely harmed during this shoot.

This post is linked up at Captivus for Letter Photo Challenge.  It is quite fun and you should join in.  Next week is F.


  1. OMG EEEEK! is right! Awesome sharpness though!

  2. Ahhh! I do not like spiders but great capture! I like the, " animals were definitely harmed during this shoot." =)

  3. Ewwww!

    So aren't they poisonous??? My favorite line, "animals were definitely harmed during this shoot" made me LOL!

  4. Yikes! Glad its dead. Good shot though.

    On my macro shot I used a 55-250mm lens. Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. eeeek!!! but I was warned. :)

    I don't like bugs, but at least it's not a snake. Please don't ever take a pic of a snake. Ok???

    "animals were harmed" oh yeah baby!!

  6. AAAKKK!!!
    I shouldn't have looked, but it is like the scary movie where you cover your eyes and then peek through,
    Oh, sheesh, seriously, heebie jeebies.
    That looks awfully similar to the spider I killed outside the other I am definitely freaking out.

  7. Ok, I think I'm the only one to laugh. Maybe that's because I've come across many creepy crawlies in the middle of the night. But then, it never occurred to me to freeze them!

  8. Damn!! Gross and sharp. Good thing nobody decided to have a snack during the night :)

  9. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I'm impressed!

    lot. I was seeking this particular info for a long time.
