A couple of spider shots of mine. A subject I love to photograph but if a big black house spider wakes me in the night I still scream and stand on a chair like in an early 60s sitcom. The last two shots were on the same stick. We were sat in a filled awaiting a cuckoo to show so I got out the macro. The crab spider caught the weevil but a few mins later the jumping spider arrived and predated on the crab spider. You have to love macro. So much action on just one stick.

Spiders differ from insects in many ways. The most obvious one is that spiders have eight legs, and insects have six.
You are right in generally but some species use to develop the last two legs later - as an adults. Before that they have only 6 legs (i.e. transition from an "insect" to a "spider":p)!

I have just few photos of spiders (it's a territory where my daughter excels - with a macro lens...)
Found only these old files.
