The itsy-bitsy spider

…has some incredibly long legs.

I actually kind of hate spiders. For as long as I can remember, they’ve creeped me out. I don’t really know why; I know they won’t hurt me (at least, not the ones that live here), and I’ve never had any sort of traumatic experience with them. I just…don’t like them.

Which should be a testament to how much I wanted to get pictures of this guy. He’s one of about four of his kind I spotted out by my vegetable pots last week. There was a very strong part of me that wanted to… let’s say, “get rid of him,” but I resisted the urge. As long as he and his friends stay outside, we should be able to get along alright.
