One of the Reasons They Invented "Aieeee!"

Tonight's macro adventure featured a giant, hairy-legged spider that one of our cats detected on the ceiling. With a little help from my critter wrangler, and five minutes of fridge time (doesn't hurt the creatures), this was the result.

Two words: Frea. Ky. Emphasis on the "Aieeee!"

Getting up close to these buggers is pretty nerve-wracking, but when one sees the results, it's kind of worth it. Especially the part about seeing those eerie eyes.

A few minutes later, things warm up, and our subjects are released back into the wild, none the worse for wear.

Hey, some people go on dates. We do macro photography of creepy-crawlies.
