Brown Recluse up close

I took these photographs of a brown recluse spider up close.  We find these everywhere in our house in North Texas.  Not a spider you want to get bit by.  Its not really fatal, few if anyone dies from a bite, but the bite does rot the flesh away and will leave lots of bad memories.

 we have them here in Kansas


we have them here in Kansas as well. my wife is making headway on killing off the ones that live in our basement. when i see them, i generally just hit them with a shot of carb and choke cleaner. enough of that will kill even the biggest of beasts ;)

My son moved into a house with a bunch of spiders years ago. They set off a couple bug bomb's and left for the day. Ended the spider problem. His step son was terrified of them. His wife was just short of terrified.

Your doing some pretty good

Your doing some pretty good macro stuff. I seldom have the patience to do macro. Strange too because I like setting up and using the 6x7 camera I have.

Gnarly photos....did you stomp it out after?  Also, what lens were you using?  I know it's a macro but what focal length?

That was frightening.Spiders

That was frightening.Spiders seem pretty innocuous and there are only several varieties that can really kill. However, a spider bite can get very serious easily. For instance, one Jane Hefferan was attacked after graduating from law school and spent four years recuperating, incurring $1 million in medical debt.
