I believe I’ve mentioned on here before that I am not terribly fond of photographing spiders, as they kinda give me the creeps. But occasionally one will interest me. I was looking at the newest crocus blooms today and saw this little one on one of the blooms.
a closer look:
What happened next is kinda funny (now). I moved my camera to take photos of some other crocus blooms beside of this one. (I’ll probably post a couple of those next.) But while doing that, I had the camera extremely close to the bloom this spider was on. When I raised the camera, the spider was gone. The last time I looked at him he was taking one of those stances like they do when threatened. So upon noticing that he was missing I went into a search of my camera, hoping he hadn’t jumped or crawled onto it when I had it too close to him. I didn’t see him on my camera at all. But was still wondering where he had went to, when finally I spotted him.
He had been hiding on the underside of the crocus bloom the entire time.
And I had wasted 5 minutes searching my camera for nothing. LOL!
