For those of us who are afraid of spiders for one reason or another, spider photography can be many things. It can be frightening because it shows what the creepy crawlies actually look like, or it can be an exciting insight into what these creatures are all about. These photos by Jimmy Kong show spiders intently looking directly at a camera.
Given all the cool things that spiders do (making a web probably being at the top of that list,) taking photographs is rarely unrewarding. These photos don't show spiders in any sort of action shots, but they do show in excruciating detail what these arachnids look like, down to the last hair.
The spider's eyes are all glossy and look like steely marbles, and their hairs looks like sharp little needles that could prick someone without warning. The fading off the background is a nice touch as well, because it brings to focus the spiders and only the spiders.
