As I was wrapping up my bird watching and getting ready to start my chores, I ran into these two fellows. I didn't have my macro attachment or flash, but they came out fairly well.

Using a macro lens means going close to these spiders :(

You have some weird looking critters in your part of the world :) - wouldn't be my favourite subject, but each to his own. Just curious - how big are these things in real life - I hope these aren't 1:1! :o :D

The first one was about 3/4" in diameter including legs. The second was a bit larger, maybe 1 1/2 inches.

Thanks Tom. My reaction is still :o - yikes. I am glad that our winters are probably too cold for those guys to live up here in the Great White North. :thumbup:

Neat Cardinal pictures. This is one bird that we do not see in my part of the Great White North. I like #3 the best of the bunch.

A lovely set of shots Tom, the cardinals look terrific - are these all local birds to you?
