    I was under the impression you drank tea, not coffee.
    Enjoy your optivisor,

    If I send you some pictures of the spider that lives on my front porch, could you identify it? I’ve become quite a fan of him/her.

    @lb, Nerd of Redhead:

    Love the optivisor!
    Enjoy your optivisor

    I read those as “ovipositor” and became afraid of watching the video…

    It’s official: my phone camera is unsuitable for taking spider pictures. Due to its colouring and abdominal shape, I have decided that my porch buddy is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Or something.

    Obviously spiders aren’t bugs (or insects), but you can search based on common image criteria. A little Googling will get you a long way too, especially depending on your locale.

    And most spiders aren’t hazardous to humans, which is why I’m not bothered by any of the ones that happen to take up residency in my home.
