Itsy Bitsy Spider

It's crazy how cameras transport us into other worlds. I was taking photos of this spider and at one point he lunged at me and I jumped about a foot backwards. I was so focused on taking the spider's photo that I forgot for a moment that he was only about a half a centimeter in size.
