As if the spiders raining from the sky wasn’t enough this week, now we have a spider that looks like that demonic clown from Steven King’s 1990 hit-film ‘It’.

This freaky clown spider is actually a species of crab spider in the family Thomisidae. Ukrainian photographer Igor, 44, a full time engineer, has been experimenting with macro photography for the past three years and spotted the crab spider near to his house in a spot where he often heads to practice his macro photography.

Igor said: “When I first came across the spider I thought it was just going to be my usual macro shot and there didn’t seem anything particularly unusual about the spider.

“I didn’t notice its strange features.

“I was even more stunned to see how it looked on my computer screen because it was almost as if somebody had drawn the features on with a pen.”

This might be the creepiest creepy-crawley I’ve ever seen.
