Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149210079X, Paperback)

What awaits you inside of this book? A wandering tarantula, not waiting, out looking for a mate. A spiderling squirting a stream of silk into the air, waiting to take flight to another place and call it home. A tiny yellow crab spider on a giant yellow flower, waiting for a hungry insect to land so that it can eat. A banana spider, all eight claws grasping different strands of silk, waiting for an insect to fly into her trap. A spiny-backed orb weaver, waiting on a single thread for a tremble. A horde of spiderlings riding atop their wolf-spider mother, waiting until they're big enough to set out on their own. A grass spider sitting on the edge of a carnivorous pitcher plant, waiting for an insect to land. Waiting, waiting, waiting. That’s what spiders do. Did I mention the incredible close-up photos of spiders.
