Malaysian photographer Jimmy Kong took these amazing macro photos of spiders native to his Southeast Asian country. Their eyes are so clear and shiny that you can see Jimmy and his camera reflected in them. It feels like they’re peering inside our brains. The longer we look at them, the more we suspect these beguiling arachnids may actually be trying to hypnotize us all. While that may not work, they’re pretty much guaranteed to win any staring contest.
