Travel Photo of the Day (May 29)

Yikes! Photo taken in Malaysia. I don't know what type it is or if it is poisonous. I didn't stick around to find out.

  1. Aaaaaaah!
    What’s next, a pic of the Inland Revenue’s headquarters…?
    And how did you get him to hold still? When I try stuff like that, it turns out all fuzzy.

      I think he was stunned by our group of hikers. Or he was plotting how to kill me, but I don’t want to think about that.

    Very sensible. I would too but not as quickly as my daughters 😉

  3. Good grief, that’s enough right there to keep me reading about Malaysia instead of visiting it!

  4. Ya, I wouldn’t have either :).

    Yikes is right. I would have run the other way!

    I find bugs interesting, but couldn’t easily find your spider on the web – not that I am any kind of spider insect. But I did find this blog devoted to Malaysian spiders – just in case you want to peruse it sometime:

      A blog devoted to spiders in Malaysia–good thing I didn’t see that before I booked the trip. thanks for the link. I have some more photos of spiders and maybe I figure out what they are. Bugs are fascinating, just as long as they aren’t near me or on me.

    I think I’d be gone, too. In a hurry!

    • TBM says:

      I didn’t want to run too fast. There were plenty of creepy crawlies on this hike. I tried to get photos of others and then I thought, “How many can see me and I can’t see them?” That freaked me out.

    Yikes! Not my favourite creatures at all. Is he missing a leg? 🙂

  10. wolke205 says:

    Oh my… I am so scared of all kinds of spiders…

    • TBM says:

      They aren’t my favorite. I still free them outside, but it takes a lot of will power not to run away screaming. Not sure I would move this guy. Might move myself.

  11. lynnsbooksl says:

    Run away!!!!
    Lynn 😀

  12. Madhu says:

    This one make my hair stand on end!

  13. fgassette says:



  14. That is one scary spider. Yeesh!

  15. Novroz says:

    I dont think this one has poison because I see it al lot in garden

  16. poppytump says:

    There’s something about taking a close up of a spider if one finds them scary … I do too . Maybe it is a therapy of some sort Lol

  17. like snakes, i want to like them for the good they might do but just can’t. even the picture scares me

    • TBM says:

      Snakes scare me as well. I used to live in Colorado and some snakes would get in my house. I really, really hated that.

  18. Fergiemoto says:

    YIKES is right! Oh my goodness, that’s scary.
