Spiders at the junkyard

Post by lologrande » Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:51 am

Went down the the Alki Junkyard a few day ago. The sea spiders are out in force. I was excited to find one with eggs. Now if they were just a little easier to photograph! :angry:

Are those eyes?

A slightly better look at the eggs.
The owls are not what they seem.

Good idea to use the snoot on these. Really makes them pop! Great job.

Thanks guys. They are some freaky weird critters. Gdog come on up or down. I live really close to the junkyard. I dive it pretty regularly. My schedule is somewhat flexible so hit me up when you want to go.
