ما أعظم صنيع الخالق سبحانه وتعالى

هذهـ المخلوقات الصغيرة التي أذهلت العالم بأسرهـ على قدراتها الخارقة ..

وعلى مساكنها الواهنة .. والتي خاف منها أصناف كثيرة من بني البشر

ولا غبار على خوفهم فأغلب أنواع العناكب .. مضّرة للإنسان


لكن العجيب في الأمر .. أنها في نفس الوقت صديقة له .. !!

بل وذهب البعض إلى حد القول بأنه لولا الله ثم هي لما كان للإنسان مستقر على الأرض ،

ذلك لأنها تقضي معظم وقتها في اصطياد الحشرات والفتك بها.

فلولاها لتكاثرت الحشرات وأتت على الأخضر واليابس.

I am back, had to take a break for a while. Hit a huge wall there for a bit. My thanks to all of you that were concerned about my absence.

Took about 50 shots to get this spider, it's not perfect focus due to the lens hitting the web!

See and enroll yourself in my new nature channel youtube like and share "Nature Meditation Sounds" I hope all there thank you.


Spider: "This is all mine!!!!!"

Me: "Oke, spider, but can I take your picture instead?"


And so it happened ;-))

Argiope Aurantia

Ground Crab Spider, Xysticus

Inn at Afton, Rockfish Gap, Nelson County, VA

There's this huge huge quarter sized spider outside MY window, not stacey's, my window. He's guarding our home from drunken frat boys. At least that's what i tell myself.

The spider species Araneus diadematus is commonly called the European garden spider, diadem spider, cross spider, or crowned orb weaver. It is an orb-weaver spider found in Europe and North America.

Found this spider on its single-line multi-fold web strand. I had no idea what it was, except cool, and demanding to be photographed. Did.


Didn't take long to find it online...very common spider. Simply named Garden Spider; you can look it up.


Some of this species grow larger than a person's hand. This one was tiny, and could easily have hidden behind a pop bottle cap.

Spider spinning the web. Very difficult to focus on a very small spider.

Spider by brick wall

Australian Lynx Spider [Oxyopes gracilipes] spider can be easily be identified by the very long spines on their legs and their eye setting. The size of these spiders is between 4 and 10 mm, introduced here... very small, very active hunter. Often seen during the day hunting. Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders, flies. Oxyopidae in general rely on keen eyesight in stalking, chasing, or ambushing prey, and also in avoiding enemies.

Spiders, not as bad as they may appear.

wasp spider (Argiope bruennichi)

A jumping spider. Captured using reverse lens macro technique with Nikon 50mm 1.8G lens, manual focus, built-in flash.

The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and about 5,000 described species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species. Jumping spiders have some of the best vision among arthropods and use it in courtship, hunting, and navigation. Although they normally move unobtrusively and fairly slowly, most species are capable of very agile jumps, notably when hunting, but sometimes in response to sudden threats. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, and they use both systems (bimodal breathing). Jumping spiders are generally recognized by their eye pattern. All jumping spiders have four pairs of eyes with one pair being their particularly large anterior median eyes.

I'm informed this is a Nursery Web Spider.
