2012, Day 258 - Uninvited guest

I have been having a grand time with my insect macros recently and I am continuing on with the theme tonight.  This little bugger was in my house, I found him slowly spinning a web when I was cleaning behind a piece of furniture.  If you come into my house without an invitation then you are obliged to be a model.  So he was gently coaxed into a small container and taken to the studio.  I allowed him about fifteen minutes to explore his temporary confines and then we started our shoot.  Initially I didn't notice all his fine hairs and, unfortunately they were not displayed to good effect in the head-on shots so I moved him into profile and found that I quite liked this one.
