Foto Finish: Spooky

This week's Foto Finish theme is Spooky.  Here's my entry:


We've had these huge garden spiders all over the yard this fall.  This one is doing quite a business in flying gnats!  As much as I dislike seeing these guys (and I especially dislike running into their webs!), they are good garden friends.  We try to leave them alone as much as possible.  I like them so much that I won't even kill them when I find them in the house.  Instead, I get Mike to catch them and take them outside.  (You didn't think I was going to catch them myself, did you?  Gack!)


For next week's theme, I'm thinking about:  Things that are round


And now, I'm ready to see your spooky images.  Here's Mr. Linky:

heh! I just had Scott catch-and-release an 8-legged "friend" and put it outside. Bug-eaters are always good to have around out there. :D

Ooog, you're right, that is SPOOKY!! Blah! LOL!! But on the positive side, those big ol' garden spiders to a great job of eating the bugs we don't like! :)

Definitely spooky, ugly too! LOL. Spiders are very good as they do keep down other pests.

Ugh, how big is that thing? I like his web, but he looks huge. I remember something like that from when I was a kid, giant spiders that would spin webs all over the garden at night.

I'm not crazy about spiders and kill them when I see them. The camp I bought this summer was full of them and their webs. Yuck! But they do making interesting webs. I just don't like getting caught in them.
