corner spider

corner spider

Spider found in a corner of my kitchen, of unknown (at least to the photographer…) species. Taken in Albany, CA by a Nikon N75 with a Nikkor 28-80 kit lens (at 80) on Fuji Superia 800. Exposure unrecorded: on-board flash used. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010, dust removal and gamma correction done in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. Cropped lightly to 4×5 aspect ratio.

Subject is about 1:3 on the film plane: above photo, when viewed on my 17" CRT monitor at 1152×864, is at least twice life size… hind end is UP! (h/she was hanging this way!)

Some of the leg shadows don’t touch the end of the leg because the legs are on the spider’s web!

This may be a cast-off exoskeleton…
