Here are some photos of a few creatures that everyone seems to fear: snakes, rodents, spiders and roaches. I just love em! Raw creatures at their best.
Admittedly, this took some working up to daring to hold the spider. Isn’t she fantastic? Her feet felt like tiny suction cups in my hands. This rose hair tarantula is not dangerous. Spiders bring fear to many people, and they did to me too at one time, but they are fascinating, and like all animals I know they are here for a purpose. Spiders and snakes are both beneficial to humans, helping with the natural balance of things, which helps to reduce reliance on toxic pesticides.
Remember that they are here for their own reasons and they are beneficial to people, so let them do their thing. Enjoy the photos!
I always LOVE your thoughtful, slow, Zen approach to every detail, Owen. It reminds me to calm down, appreciate LIFE, even just the feel of a bug on my hand!
But I confess…..THERE IS NO WAY ON EARTH I could ever sit still with a spider OR a roach on my hand. My body would not obey me!
Ha ha ha. Makes me laugh. I thought you might like that, so I emailed you the photos. About the spider, I said the same thing at one time. 🙂
