Hiding in the Curtains

62/365 - Spidey

New month, new set of critters. This month I decided to show pictures of spiders! I noticed a while back that I have enough pictures of spiders to carry out a whole month of camera critters, so that's what I will do.

I took this picture last March, when I was in my late father's hometown. I just woke up, brushed my teeth, and when I walked back to my room to fix myself for a brand new day, I noticed this spider hiding in the curtains. My Aunt made a little decoration in the curtains - gathering some parts in the middle and tying them with a hair band, and in the folds of the curtain is where this spider took its shelter.

I needed to use the flash to take this picture, and I am glad that even if I fire the flash near the spider it didn't jump off, and it didn't make the whole image all white.
