Creepy Crawlers

As much as we might get the ‘heebie jeebies’ from our eight-legged friends, we have to admit that they make for a very interesting photo!

The Gasteracantha cancriformis, also known as the spiny-backed orbweaver, jewel box spider or smiley face spider is found in many different areas of the world, including Bermuda, where we found this little guy.

After doing some research, we knew that this spider was not poisonous and decided to make our shot a little more photo-friendly.  We carefully took the spider out of his web, cautious not to disturb it, and placed him on a nearby leaf.  After a few great poses, we called it a wrap and went about our separate ways.

Enjoy nature as it comes – don’t be afraid to wander a little bit outside of your comfort zone!
