Spider on Carpet

I noticed this spider crawling up my stairs, so I grabbed the macro lens. I chased the spider up the stairs, flashing away at it. It didn't seem to mind the flash, but when I got close enough to it to focus down to 1:1, it could see the lens, and it reared up on its legs in a menacing attack/defense posture. I like the flash catchlight in the spider's many eyes.
