Hi Pat! I thought you were gonna say " I finally banged him with the heel of my shoe!" LOL
Excellent shot ma'am! In the thumbnail you cant even tell he's on a web, & barely in the full view! Great clarity & can see his "poodle" cut perfectly! Good one there young lady! C):-) Dan (no thanks needed)

you've struck me dumb, woman.. I'm at a loss for words :) This is of the finest spider pics I've seen..poodle cut indeed. While you are there in the south grooming your spiders, we here in the north are fighting the good fight before the cold sets in to keep the spiders out of the house and in their own place in the wild. The composition on this is without question excellent and the color and detail are superb... Thanks for this superior post :)PJ

He's a very hansome fellow. If you touch the web does he shake it rapidly? A least he help get rid of the pest insects.

I think that spider is roughly 10 times bigger than mine :). I'm kinda happy that we don't have that big spiders over here, but on the other hand it would be nice to take pictures of them if I had the guts :). Nice shot anyway!

He's got better color than a poodle, that's for sure, but I don't think I would pet him as quickly:).
