A Welcome Visitor


Spiders some are stalkers some are web weavers. According to folklore they are a symbol of the cosmic order. Depending on what time of day they visit it could be good or bad luck. Don't kill one inside your home it will rain. This tale I grew up hearing and it is best to let them out!
This fellow is a crab spider and he's a stalker waiting for his prey. He looks just like a crab and he'd fit right in at the sea shore. This one is brown but I have seen crab spiders that are white and yellow too.

He's cool! He does look like a crab. I always try to 'relocate' the house spiders outside. I've always kind of liked them. :) xo Pam

I don't kill spiders indoors, no,no. I feed them first and allow them to use the bathroom before sending them on their merry way!

This particular one is pretty hideous looking, though. I might just send him on his way :0

Great photo! We have a lot of the white crab spiders here. I have forbade Hubby from killing ANY spiders! So now he calls me to come get them and 'relocate' them. :0)

Beautiful pictures and I love the information. I'm not a huge fan of spiders per say, but I am cautious not to kill one as my mother used to always tell my sister and I that they were good luck.

Well I can tell you, living in this part of California you could pretty much kill'em all and still would not rain! lol
I like the picture but I rather see it like that, just in a photograph :oD

Ick! I kill any spider that I see. Unless it is larger than a dime...then I scream loudly and run away to get my husband to come and kill it!
