Jams, was that absolutely necessary?

His Girl Friday said...

With the exception to the daddylonglegs,(which are still creepy, but they kill other insects/spiders)

....the only good spider, is a dead spider! and that said, 'cause we constantly are dealing with Black Widows. Had to teach the kiddies young, to be able to spot and avoid them.

thanks, Jams...nothing like a creepy spidy pic to greet one with her early morning coffee and reading perusal.... ;)

*shudder*

Think I might have nightmares tonight

jams o donnell said...

Of course james!

I take a different view to spiders. I love all of the spiders we have in our garden. THat said I would be less favourable if I had to deal with Black Widos or Brown Recluses!

jams o donnell said...

Aww skuds, he;s such a handsome fellow!

TOO LATE!!!

I stayed just long enough to see that it was a good photo. Now I am going to run away screeming!

jams o donnell said...

Hah. At least you saw an excellent photo Cherie!

I don't particularly like spiders. But I truly admire their artistic work. Once, as a little girl, for hours I watched a spider weave an intricate web. I was filled with wonder. I vowed never to kill a spider unless it would be harmful. I don't want them in my house. I gently guide them to the outside world when they visit me.

The one you're showing is a beauty. I hope it's not 'une femme fatale'...

jams o donnell said...

If we hadd venomous species here I would take a different approach--- basically far more careful. Otherwise I like them to be left to their devices

If a femme, probably tres fatale Claudia!

I am terrified of spiders but recognize the role that they play in out ecosystems... I just want them to do it outside IN the ecosystem...

I wonder why it is called davidbowie... The namer was a fan or because of some other reason?

jams o donnell said...

I agree but harmlees spiders (to us anyway) are welcome

Liz said...

oh my!!!

jams o donnell said...

That's a reaction I like Liz!

Sean Jeating said...

What an attractive spider! I am not sure if she is happy with her name.
On the other hand, very flattering for David Bowie.

jams o donnell said...

Ah could be Sean!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yep, that she is. And I just feel that I have started digging its name now.

A Free Man said...

Love it. Love the name as well. You went with the Spiders from Mars in your last post, but I'd like to humbly suggest 'Scary Monsters' as well!

jams o donnell said...

Ah there you go Snoopy!

Depending onn the size it could very well be a bloody scary monster for many AFM!

The Lone Beader said...

I have nightmares about this kind of spider!

jams o donnell said...

It certaunly has the power to scare even if I find it beautiful!
