Bugs in general freak me out, but spiders are in a class alllll of their own. I’d happily spend the night in the bathtub if I saw one of these creepy crawlies scuttling across my bedroom wall, or even worse, ceiling! And so I must thank Thomas Shahan for taking these absolutely stunning macro shots because Lord knows I’d never ever get close enough to a spider to appreciate their strange beauty otherwise. Does anyone else feel slightly hypnotized staring into those shiny, alien eyes?
*Apologies to arachnophobes who came here expecting something pretty to look at, and then BAM – giant spiders in your face!! I just thought these photos were too incredible not to share.
