Comments & ID Thoughts

I live in Michigan. Spider has Very large eyes. Scary! Could not kill with bug/spider spray. Found them in my yard again today. Worried about my kids.

Using digital zoom distorts photos too much. It am certain that it is safe to get closer. There are glass optical true magnifying lenses that clip onto cell phone cameras. They’re like using binoculars with your camera.


Almost looks like a cute plushy toy, don’t see a spider here.


Hi, see above image for ID. 🙂


Curious how you pegged this, I can’t make one single feature tying this to Neoscona,Aranea for that matter and that is after enhancement.
