Macro Friday | A Train and a Spider



 

(Arachnophobes –you’ve been warned:  There is a spider shot in this post.)

 

Does this count?  Probably not, but I couldn’t resist.  James’ expression is too cute.James-1 

Even though I know that many people are freaked out by this photo of spidey, I really, really like it.  This was taken during the same hike we did at Lamma Island where I got this shot.Spidey

Spiders. They used to freak me out but then we moved to a house on the lake. Now we tolerate each other. Great shots!

How as a mother can you not think of Thomas, James and all their friends when you hear train. :)

Love the train, I tried to capture the spider that close but either I am afraid to go too close or I have to buy a new lens
