An unusual spider I found outside my home. I’m hoping she left eggs.
AS: it’s a spiny orb weaver, Im’ pretty sure specificallyMicrathena gracillis,and going from the size of it’s abdomen it is a female as males are much slimmer :)

I have NO idea what this is, it looks like she could be a wolf spider, but it seriously doesn’t at the same time. She was really dark, the picture’s doing her justice. I never heard of a black and white wolf spider like this? She was about the size of a quarter, too. I found her in Maryland if that helps. She almost looks like a baby tarantula, but I know better than that.
AS: that is a Herpyllus ecclesiasticus, Eastern Parson Spider :) very striking spiders

I found this cutie on the way to work. He was in the middle of the road when I was crossing the street, so i thought I would move him away so he didn’t get hit. ;-;

Sorry about the poor quality, I don’t have a very good camera.
Saw this little guy having his lunch on my front porch today and I had to snap a picture. It just blew my mind that the grasshopper was that big in comparison to the spider.
It’s a jumping spider, but I don’t know what kind. I live in Western Massachusetts and we get a lot of these little jumpers around here, they’re my favorite. It has little green fangies oh my gosh.

 Well firstly, there’s no rush, don’t push yourself or try to hold a spider, as they may do the opposite of helping, just keep this in mind, the spider may scare you but the spider is as scared as you are scared of it, just keep this is mind about the spiders you come across, most are not harmful, even a black widow bite is almost never fatal, it may hurt but the spider is not out to get you it was defending itself from what it thought was a giant predator, they are small, inquisitive and often times curious about their surroundings and if found in the house just wandered in there to be warm, or eat the insects in your house, they aren’t there to bite you or hiding behind a corner waiting for you, spiders are not evil or plotting and like i said there are more harmless spiders than dangerous ones, so chances are if you see one out and about its just a ground spider looking for food :) hope that helps!

My mom just brought this little fuzzbeast in from outdoors with a stack of magazines. Ghetto macro photography time (iPhone + jeweler’s loupe)!
