Creepy as they may be, they are also fascinating! More I say

Spiders are one of my favourite animals. I would love to see more. Do you have any bumble bees?

We have a sedum in our yard, which bumble bees seem to love (in the late summer). They seem to get so distracted while gathering nectar from the sedum, that you can actually pet them on their backs...

Very nice.

Insects (and arachnids) are amongst the most beautiful things in the universe. They're quite a wonder to me.

Here are a couple of photos of a redback spider nest I found in my front yard...





I think this one is a wheel weaving spider:

I really shouldn't have opened this thread. Spiders creep me the hell out.

However, I really like your grasshopper pic

This morning I took these photos of a baby huntsman spider - it's 5 cm (2 inches) long, which is only about 1/4 of it's full grown size... they're completely harmless to humans though!
