In Which Avalus is a Spider’s Playground

Story and photos by Avalus,

While riding a bus to Work, I noticed this tiny little spider running over my hand. For the next ten minutes or so, I got strange looks from the other passengers for first intensely watching and then photographing my hand. Most of the photos were very blurry, as the autofocus had trouble focussing on the ever zig-zagging spider.

The spider started spinning a web between my knuckles and then ran between them and did this stilted pose.

We finally parted ways after leaving the bus where it jumped off and maybe floated way on a strand of silk.

Goodbye little spider, grow big and eat some mosquitos for me!

    Possibly a winner of the competition for the tiniest spider out there. Well spotted, I do not think I would even notice that little fellow, especially not in public transport.

    A nice catch. Also, the least threatening ultra-close look at another person’s knuckles I’ve seen.
