Hide and Seek


The little spider wants to avoid me, "No working on Sunday, or pay me double!"


As I am always visible in size, the spider tries to disappear from my sight whenever I arrive. But I am a homo sapiens who always take control of the situation. It can never escape from the corner of my eye as long as it starts losing patience, and makes some movement, though it is tiny.


It is out there posing for me. Who cares about voluntary or otherwise. Result counts.

It stays in the world of homo sapiens, that's it.

"No overtime claim!"

Our disadvantage over critters, well said Rainfield, but despite we wre easily seen so they hide from you, you still took great photos.

It doesn't look like a spider but I believe you.

Greetings,

Excellent pictures of the spider. I'm glad this spider couldn't hide from you.

Icy BC said...

How could anything hide from your observing eyes? This spider doesn't look "eewww" to me, but a pretty one..

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

It seems to be staring at us with four eyes.

Holy smokes! That is an amazing spider picture. How do you get close enough to get the eyes so well?

your spider sd be told, play is play, no pay.

Thank goodness the storm was polite, kajang puteh. I am "banished" to Siberia. The school is renovating , and I am relocated to the far end of the compound. Won't like it when it rains too much. The kids come to my space every 45 minutes.

On Thursday, I had one umbrella, the kids said they didn't mind being wet. The Ang Mo and Polynesian kids are like this. I think the Chinese parents will complain to the principal.

Yikes! That is a strange looking spider. But you sure do take great close ups of all those tiny critters! Beautiful!

Grass said...

Incredible shots--- how wonderful that you had the patience to take them. It seems to have 4 eyes (incredible!!)

JTG (Misalyn) said...

Awesome macro shots, as always. Our advantage over small critters, they can never say no to us hahaha!

I am guessing that you were doing those "acrobats" while taking these photos.

By the way, I would like to master the arithmetic if it is the only to remind me how blessed I am :))

Cheryl said...

What an amazing looking spider, so glad he didn't mind you taking his photo to show us.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I have to admit even for being a spider, he is a cutie. Your photos are magical, Rainfield as are your words and thoughts.

AVCr8teur said...

It has so many eyes that it can't help but work overtime to look out for the random paparazzi to show off its best poses.

Amin said...

Hello! Beautiful eyes!

No creature, large or small, can escape your lens, rainfield. While I normally have such an aversion to spiders, this little guys is kind of cute!

Bananazஇ said...

No office no work no overtime, no school no studies no graduation. Wow the spider eyes are very unique. Who's hiding & who's is seeking? Starts counting now..1:5; 1:10; 15:20; 25:30; 35:40;...95:100. Chop!
