Wow he really does have his little foot hooked on there doesn't he!!!...Humm...do spiders have "feet"?

This is a superb image of this big guy, Stan and I am sure glad he is at your house and not mine! (BIG SMILE HERE!)

Great Job! -Laura

This kind of gives me the creeps but this is an outstanding capture Stan with fantastic detail and clarity. I sure hope we see this one again, just not at my house.

Oh dear...I can stay here long. This one has given me the eeby-geebies... but it's spectacular and I love the title too! Photobucket

Huge congrats on your finalist. I'd re-entire this. It's surely is worth to go on, Stan!
