Araignée du soir...


Spotted last weekend. I'm sure there are lots of spiders, yet I had never noticed one this big right in the middle of the city centre.
------------------
Vue le weekend dernier. Je suis sûre qu'il y a plein d'araignées, comme partout, mais je n'en avais jamais vu une aussi grosse en plein centre ville.

Ugly beast,great images. The first one is nice for the buildings in background, but the second is really great for the colors and the glimpses of the cobweb.

La 1ere est belle avec l'environnement citadin un peu flou mais que l'on devine suffisammment bien

You are frightened of our little gators and a few sharks but spiders you can handle, heh?

You did well here; it is hard to catch a spider in mid-web, so to speak!

I think she is beautiful! Anything that eats biting insects is a friend of mine... Lovely photo, great control of depth of field.

They are quite ugly. I wouldn't get that close.

What a find, and a wonderful composition. Interesting to see a city, not more plants, in the soft background.

These garden spiders are great, handy to have them in the garden and wonderful webs they spin often across huge gaps.

This is great! And applicable for the season we are in... Tried photographing the one outside my door and I don't think he liked it much! Thanks for visiting my site!

Ca me rappelle le vieux mythe urbain de la veuve noire qu'on trouverait cachée dans les bananes dans beaucoup de supermarchés! Je ne pense pas avoir jamais pris de photos d'araignées ou de toiles, ceci me pousse a le faire!

Great catch! I haven't seen a spider like that with such a big body before!

I also left a commnet below on one I missed yesterday.

Great find! I hate spiders but they fascinate me at the same time. Fantastic background in the second shot.

Wow, you have a sharp eye.
Glad you didn't walk into the web by mistake.
