Howdy All,

I've been experimenting with my Canon 90D and have been lucky to spot two jumping spiders in a local city garden.

Yes. I know the horror stories about these spiders are overrated, but they still give me the shivers!

I've never been bitten, but I've seen the damage they have done to people I know ... and I want nothing to do with them. I respect living things but there is only one form of a brown recluse I would want to be close too..lol.

One of the Facebook groups I belong to (Antman's Hill) deals with insects and spiders. Some of the members say what doctors diagnose as a Recluse bite are really just MRSA infections. Especially when the "bite" is from the northern states outside of the range of Recluses. One member even brags about having many of them in his house, and none of the family has ever been bitten. He may be correct, but when I see one, it will not be down for breakfast the next morning.

I've always been a bit arachnophobic, but I'm now to the point of being able to get close enough for macro work, but still ain't gonna reach out and pet them.

Your above statement sums up my feelings perfectly. :-)
