eww spiders. EWW SPIDERS!! </shivers>

What kind of camera are you using? The focus seems to be a little off and the light a tad harsh. Of all of them, I think the dragon fly ones are your best. On some of the others the background texture seemed to take some of the focus away from the subject, meaning that I ended up being more curious about what the surface was, as these were not their "natural" surroundings.

Keep up the good work. The more you snap away, the better you'll get.

Nice pics, but I really hate spiders. I killed one the other day on my bedroom wall...:rolleyes:

It is a Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS HD with 8.1mg option, and 12X Optical Zoom

I do notice in some of the close ups, that the background does show more. The one spider that I got the close up of it's face, is on the bathroom wall which is light blue. The light brown spider was on a rug outside, and the one on the silver squares was on the back deck on a tarp. The lady bug was on the front door frame. The grasshoppers and crickets, are all taken outside, but the sunlight was shining on the one, that is why it is so bright. I love all of nature, unless I know it is poisonous. I have several Brown Recluse bites from when I am asleep. I got more in Kansas than here, but I feel I might have brought some with me during the move. Other than that, regular spiders help keep the bugs down. We didn't have a problem with mosquitoes this year like everyone else did :D

Here are a few others, that were on my cameras memory.

I have no idea why this one is a bit fuzzy. Maybe cuz I was in a hurry because he wouldn't stay still LOL.
