    That's pretty cool. I'd love to see a whole cluster of those at once!

    Ummmmm, not me. I don't like spiders very much. I'd like to see this one (just ONE) in person though. Unfortunately I don't plan on traveling to HI anytime soon [​IMG].

    I'm not much of a spider person, but have learned to live in peace with my black widows in the raised beds.

    But a cluster of those face spiders would look like a bunch of balloons!

    I hadn't thought about it, but I guess they would [​IMG].

    I'll be sure to drop my black widows off at your house on my way down in 2 weeks [​IMG]. [​IMG]

    Quote:Um, no thanks. I'm afraid I may have to thin them out this year. I was dismayed at how many egg cases I missed when I cleaned the beds out!
    I'm praying that they were thinned a little by the Dogwood Winter cold snap. I've had a peaceful relationship with them so far and want to keep it that way!

    But you guy is a lot cuter!
    BW's have to be the UGLIEST spider ever created....
