A Spider Story

Although spiders are my favorites in photography, I have however overlooked one of these arthropods in the jungle last Sunday morning.


That spider would never compromise. 

He gripped firm onto the car door, swung his body from side to side whenever I made sharp turns, squeezed his body flat to the surface, and his face was highly distorted against a wind speed of 90km/hr, but fluttering hairs no. He is bald.  

He managed finally to follow me home safely, so a full attention of my camera was honored.
And this is a golden moment for him who persisted and had the vision to grab it as such.


What can I say? Every simple life is always silly after all, and is so simple silly.

A może on nie jest głupi, tylko chciał poczuć wiatr na sobie, jadąc na samochodzie. Drugie zdjęcie jest świetne. Pozdrawiam.
Or maybe he's not stupid, he wanted to feel the wind on him, driving the car. The second photo is great. Yours.

Am no fan of spider but your capture of these awesome shots convince me that it is actually quite pretty. :)
Glad that it persisted in holding tightly onto your moving car.

You have the most interesting spiders there! Most of ours are just brown and gray. A few orb spiders have interesting patterns. Beautiful!

He certainly did hang on!

AWESOME, the way it worked out, such patience exhibited by each of you. In the end, it was the performance--actor and camera-tech--which mattered.

The show must go on!
