    Insecty, spidery, bug-like things please.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    I think you posted that a while back. Was it a close up?

    The one on Photobucket was 800 pixels wide, so I think it only found its way onto the wildlife thread, not a contest.

    Wow -- he/she's fat compared to the North American ones I knew! (They used to build webs across the trails we made in the blackberry zone of the vacant lot next door to us... and scare us to no end.... especially if you picked a blackberry and one was hiding on it!)

    Not necesarilly - it is a young specimen, they are more rounded. When they get older, they are slightly thinner. See for example

    Unles one lives in the place full of fat flies :wink:

    I have an embarrass de richesse - not less than 10 pictures to select from. And I can't decide whether to look for creepiness or cuteness.

    At least now I know I will not use the picture linked above - one garden spider from our garden is enough :smile:

    Does a lizard count as a creepy crawly?

    That's pretty big for a Black Widow, isn't it? Ought to be a good load of venom in that baby.

    Sorry Edward, I wouldn't call a lizard a creepy-crawly. I'm thinking more of insects, spiders, millipedes etc...

    If you would have ever had one crawl up the inside of your pants leg you might get the picture.

    BTW

    The word reptile comes from the Latin reptare: to creep and repere: to crawl, so really they are creepy crawlies!
