In the tiny world of invertebrates there is a group called spiders. There are many people who just hate these critters. There is even a special term for people who are afraid of spiders, arachnophobia. In some cases I understand that people are a bit afraid of these invertebrates. Maybe someone made a cruel practical joke for them when they were young, that might leave some kind of a mental trauma. Some spiders do have a nasty venom, so that might be a good reason to avoid these eight legged critters. Though most of the spiders are not venomous to human, so in most cases this fear is not realistic even if real for some. In our hate for all things eight legged we sadly might miss one thing about these interesting beings, that is how beautiful some of them really are, colorful and with interesting patterns. This is why I thought I would like to share a few images of arachnids...
How about this one? Nice symmetric modern art pattern.
Look at these stripes, not bad, huh? No wonder it's called Was Spider.
To be honest I've never seen as beautiful spider as this one. Nice symmetric chocolate brown patterns on a caramel colored cephalothorax (the head), the abdomen decorated with dark spots on a brown base and of course the eight legs which all have nice brown stripes, just gorgeous.
The last one, a tongue showing spider :-p
Do you still think that spiders are gross?
