31 Photographs of Spiders That Will Make Your Skin Crawl

Share:  

Spiders are one of those photographic subjects that you either love or hate. Some of us run squealing from the monster in our view-finders, while others stick around and get some unforgettable macro shots. These amazingly beautiful photographs of spiders (if somewhat creepy for some of us) show what can be done if you have patience and vision with these creatures. Personally, I am content to watch from a distance.
