friday's fringe 35 ~ Orb Assault!


while squatting to get this shot of the Banana spider (Golden silk orb-weaver)...

i realized how it looked pretty cool with that monstrous Orb
descending on our roof!

ARACHNID ATTACK!
Spider Invasion!




and for those of you who get a little creeped out by spiders...

here's a view of the morning crescent moon from the backyard.

  3. Oh it does look like a Giant Spider attack! How cool! (not that I'd want a Giant Spider to attack your house or anything)
    LOVE that moon too :)

  5. That is one pretty impressive spider you caught there. I love all Reptiles arachnids. Basically anything cold blooded.

  7. I did look through your eyes, and, imagined that monstrous orb descending on your roof...very cool-and creepy! If we look close enough at photos, we can sometimes see a hidden story in them. And, really great detail brought out in the spider's body, aagghh!

    I love your moon shot, a perfect crescent. Great photography Laura! Hope you're doing well. Dragging my feet on holiday stuff...I guess I just like the stress, lol! See you soon!♥

  8. Spiders are amazing critters, but that one was a little to in-your-face for me. I like your very cool photos but I'd have to shoot a spider that size about as far away as I would a moon shot.

  12. Ładnie wyszedł pająk na zdjęciu. Ja się ich nie boję, ale pajęczyn nie znoszę :)
    Spider came out nicely in the picture. I'm not afraid of them, but I hate cobwebs :)

  18. Thank God you showed the moon shot, too! LOL!

    I think it would be miraculous--depending on who's mind you switched with, of course. ;)

    Hope you had a great weekend. Your late reader here in Fargo. :)

  20. NICE capture of the spider.

  21. I don't mind spiders...but that one does look rather large. I'm kind of glad it is desending on your house, not mine. :)

  22. OMG that is one huge spider - have to say I'm not a big fan of spiders and I really wouldn't like to meet him, lol.
    Your slice of the moon is amazing. :)

  23. THe first time I saw Banana spiders, I was amazed. Tried and tried to get good shots, but just couldn't quite get a good one. Thanks for your great photos--of spiders and everything else.

  24. Hi Laura, great spider shot - I'm always fascinated by them and you get some good'uns! Also love your moon shots, I love them and always forget to just go outside and do some myself ... thanks for the reminder :D)
    All the very best for a wonderful Christmas to you and yours. Cheerio and I'll catch up next year :D) xx

  25. They are both beauties and magical in their own ways. I love the colors of the spider, and she does look cool "invading" your home. Any giant kitties to defend the house?

  26. Oh my he is quite the dandy cute little spidey isn't he! But your cresent moon...so beautiful! Just what I needed to see- it's really dark in our sky this evening, and currently a gentle falling of glistening white snow!
