Yes, my choice for this week’s photo challenge (close up) is a spider. Gross, I know, but bear with me…this one is actually cute! I found it in my grandfather’s garden in Trinidad and tried to get close but not too close as I had no idea if it would try to jump on my face and bite me. It was only later, when I was looking at the photograph on my laptop that I realized this wasn’t just any spider. It was Fashion Spider! This one has little booties on each leg, a little red smile, and long long eyelashes framing eyes staring directly at the camera – this was one spider that was ready for its close-up!
