Yikes, the scale of this capture really makes the spider look scary big. Well captured and nice presentation.

Carol, I envy you a lot of your insects - but not this one! This one you can keep all to yourself! Well photographed mind, lots of gruesome details!

Mornin' Carol - a bit squeamish for me, after last night's Chinese take-awayTongue

V3 gives the best overall view IMHO

There is a fresh South-Westerly blowing in these parts, but never the less, it is off to the woods in 45 minutes or soGrin
