I'm NOT afraid of spiders...
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
I'm NOT afraid of spiders...
I'm NOT afraid of spiders...
"I'm NOT afraid of spiders...that one just startled me."

I'd love to take credit for the caption, but this was the winning entry for a version of this image Joe (aka joe gardener) put on his Growing A Greener World Facebook page. I've cropped it a bit here. It garnered some great captions, but personally I liked this one the best too!

Oh dear, I do believe I have led you astray! Many thanks for your wonderful comments and...congrats. It's not that THIS image won anything...it's just that Joe posted in on his fb site so that fans of Growing A Greener World could come up with a caption to win one of his books. I used the 'winning caption' as the title to this image. My personal favorite, as who really thinks of gardeners as being afraid of spiders? LOL, hope you enjoy the 'humor'!

ABSOLUTELY FANTABULOUS!!! I had a spider fall down my anklet today and I moved fast. But not with the showmanship of this split jump. :D

AWESOME CAPTURE and TITLE!!!
