This is a Brown Recluse Spider Photograph. Brown Recluse Spiders are one of three spiders in the United States considered harmful. A Brown Recluse Spider bite will swell and become red. Eventually the flesh will begin to dissolve. Unless treated quickly you will have permanent scars and tissue damage. Brown Recluse Spiders do not often kill humans but the effects of their vemon leaves lasting permanent damage. I took these Brown Recluse Spider Photographs using a Canon 5D Mark II camera and a Canon MP-E 65mm 1x-5x lens.
A Brown Recluse Spider is best identified by the fiddle or violin shaped spot on it's head. A Brown Recluse Spider is often called by the nickname fiddleback because of the fiddle like design on its back. This Brown Recluse was found in my house in Keller Texas. We have found over 100 of these spiders in the house over several years. I like to take photographs of spiders so I took these Brown Recluse Spider Photographs to add to my collection. I have taken photographs of Black Widows as well as dozens of jumping spiders.
