The Spider meets the Photog

Spider, Sony NEX 6, 2 guys photo

I encountered this fellow quite by chance.  He was resting motionless in the bathroom sink, and being of considerable color and proportion, he caught my eye.  I started shooting and, assuming he was asleep or otherwise preoccupied and not caring, I kept on shooting.

However, I must have startled him because suddenly he exited to the nearest hiding place, perhaps his temporary home away from home?

Click on the above for a particularly creepy view.

Not sure what type of spider he is, so any help would be appreciated.   It looks like a wolf or possibly a hobo spider, but not sure.  This image will give you a sense of size compared to a US Quarter.

    Creepy indeed! The second shot is best in my opinion and it looks like it could be in a sci fi movie or something. Great closeup

    I am no spider expert so I can’t help you with the ID but you have some fine images to show the spider off here. I actually like the last one of the spider in the drain. I imagine him just peeking out waiting for you to go away. 🙂

    Well, that definitely says something about the Sony NEX 6

    I am amazed at how fast you get you camera out to take a photo!!
