definitely creepy, but also quite beautiful (unless you’re what it is looking at).

Personally I like spiders; it isn’t easy to get the eyes in focus but when you crop really close up you can usually see the reflection of the thing it is looking at.

I like spiders, this one is pretty good looking and the green leafy background is perfect color to see it’s markings. God Bless

He’s kind of cute at that, never heard of a “bearded spider” before. Great shot!

Nice capture. Excellent focus and bokeh. It was also very nice of him/her to hang the 2 legs over the curl of the leaf like that for you. It just adds that little bit extra to the image. :-)
