pictorial :: spideybub :: minimun  
so i was worried about letting the bubs out for walkies after they've moulted, since they're bigger, stronger and faster now. but after trying to shoot min through the walls of her jar, i decided that it wasn't doing her royal cuteness any justice.

i decided to take the risk after observing her in her jar for awhile. i noticed that she was still very quiet, like she was when she first emerged from her mommy's cocoon. no rushing about like a ganchiong spider. she sits and stares at nothing... a lot. i think missy and min do it the most. they would actually sit on the bottom of the jar (missy goes further to sit on her water tube) and stare at nothing, when none of the rest of the spideys (adults or babies alike) like to go near the bottom of the jar at all. i think it's really cute when they do it. they look like little deviant children.

out she came onto my hand and she did some scampering at first. nothing too exuberant. after about two minutes, she stopped on the back of my wrist. and there she sat. and sat. and carried on sitting. only after i'd downloaded my pictures did i realise that she was actually looking around as i was snapping away. i'd thought she was in the same pose throughout like 20 pictures or something. she's really too tiny for me to see her expression clearly with naked eyes.

i hope i can document her progress in close-range as she moults and grows bigger each time. if her temperament keeps up, i really hope i can have her walking on my hand even as an adult. if she was looking around calmly and not just plain stoning, i like to think i have a good chance that she's blessed with a cool and collected nature. :) also need to keep myself primed with the steady hands at all times so there is less risk of her jumping off in panic...

it seems this is as wordy as it's pictorial. well, what the hell.

i couldn't believe it when she stopped and just sat there for me to snap away. :)

Me too. I'm so glad you referred us over here, Kyle... this is exactly the kind of photography *I've* always wanted to do, and am finding a lot of inspiration!
