My first digital camera was a Vivitar. I took it out one day and saw an enormous spider in the viewfinder - tried the usual, brush hair (I still had some then) wildly with hand but it was still there, evidently not hanging down from head. Yep, it had taken up residence in the viewfinder, but was, of course, rather tiny. I left the camera lying around for a while and it seems it found it's own way out. Quite a shock the first time I saw it, though.

Interesting! My critter could have been in the viewfinder but it is a new camera. Not sure if it was on the sensor or not if you read my other replies it looks like it got mashed by the shutter. It was in perfect focus but was very small, maybe 1/40th the size of the frame.
