Michigan Spider

I almost walked out into this spider’s web when I came out of the house today, it made a web right near our doorway.


It’s one of the largest spiders I’ve seen in Michigan, I think it’s a pretty native spider and nothing deadly.

In fact I think there’s only one deadly spider Michigan, the Black Widow spider.

But it did give me a kind of scare, even though it may not be deadly, I’m sure it can deliver one hell of a bite.

Here’s another shot I got of a spider near my driveway, the spider wasn’t as big, but it was just as hideous looking.

The picture didn’t come out as good, came out a little blurred. I have this $500 camera and can’t figure out how to focus better on when I “zoom in.

” I’m fine once I get in close, but personally I don’t like to get close, I still have thoughts of the spider jumping on the lens just like in the movie Arachnophobia with Jeff Daniels.

I tried reading the manual, yet I can’t still figure it out. What I need to do is brush up on my Camera vocabulary, some of these terms I have no clue what they mean: Aperture Priority Shooting, Shutter Speed Priority Shooting, and Manual Exposure Shooting. They really don’t tell me what the words mean in the manual, I guess I’ll have to do some searching on Google.

By the way, I’m doing a test, I moved these spiders all the way to the side walk with a broom. Lets see if they can find their way back to their webs. I could of killed them, but I would feel bad since they eat a lot of bugs.

Top picture is a cross spider. They are common around buildings and other man made structures. The best time of year to see them is in late summer to early fall. Andrew
