    Spent the day in and near the Pond. Here are some of the critters I saw.

    How many spiders are in this first picture? I did not see them all when I snap the pic.

    Beautiful creatures, the best pest control ever to.

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I saw the warning, I ignored the warning, I looked and now . . . my toes are tightly curled. Painfully so. <sigh> When will I learn.

    Please tell me you used a super, duper zoom lens and that you weren't that up and close and personal with . . . . spiders!!

    At least three spiders in the first pic.

    They're great, they're wonderful pest control and you can keep them. :D

    :eusa_eh: Why not? As long as you keep your blood pressure down when near them they don't even notice you half the time, and when they do they run. I love spiders, handled them all my life, love them almost as much as I love cats. Figures, all my favorite animals/insects/etc. are the most efficient hunters of their types.

    I am one of those weird gals who love spiders! Whenever they are in the house, I just pick them up (with a towel or something) and put them outside, never kill them.



    Those are great pics RodISHI! Now would I want THEM in my house? No way, Jose.....the cats might eat them! :lol:

    I never bothered asking little dogs' opinions regarding pest control :|
