hiding. . .

I was moving stuff in the garden and a big spider jumped out. . .
and I ran away . . .
Tansy looks very well fed, wonder where the spider went?

Wow! (I know I say that a lot here...) How you managed to capture that spider is beyond me...

Great post today! :-)

I don't know if you have a very good macro lens or if that spider was really big but nice shot anyway!
And your cat is really cute - reminds me of my sister's cat.

That is a BIG spider!

I admire your composure when shooting the picture. My hands might have been shaking...just a little.

What creepy spider I'm general not scared of spider but mice gives me the willies.

Wildside, I ran in the house and got the camera, luckily it hadn't moved by the time I got back.
Pepette, camera has a great macro lens and the spider head to end of body measured about an inch.
Nancy, well I was a bit careful about how close I got. . . .
Dora, scary because it ran towards me when I uncovered it, I don't ever see mice alive round here.

Looks like you got up close and personal for this one. It was very obliging of the spider to wait while you got your camera :)
Tansy's girth looks like Jasmine's at the moment. She's so fat this winter! We call her 'Porky'. She just gives us dirty looks :)

NG, blood and guts are never my favourite thing. I hate things jumping out at me.
Kerri, Tansy wa so thin when she arrived, its nice to see her happy and healthy!

We has stray kittens that found our driveway years ago--they live by eating grasshoppers.
Now they seem to really enjoy houseflies.
What is so attractive about insects? (when there is a lovely bowl of kitty-chow right here!)

Tansy looks content and well-fed - and also on the alert for any other little critters that might be tasty. She's a beautiful cat. I love her colouring and whiskers!

Tansy is adorable! We have spider-munchers here, too. Last night Mungus was studying something on the floor and I rescued a ladybug--put it in my office in amonst the plants, where it should find others of its kind!

teehee

I can't get over how stunningly gorgeous Tansy is!

clairesgarden said...

Nina, I suppose they need the extra protein ? ?
Kate, Tansy always makes sure she's well fed, and lets you know if her opinions different from yours. . .
Jodi, well done rescuing precious ladybug!
Lowa, Tansy says thankyou!

Kerri said...

Jasmine was very thin last winter too....we don't really know why, so it's good to see her looking so healthy. She has company in the form of 2 playmate kittys this winter too, so maybe she's happier (as well as spayed..which of course makes a difference).

Tansy is so beautiful. Good girl, ate that ugly spider.
