Giant Spider Season

My contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#395). And I'm also linking to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #134.
Here's an Ashburn chicken:

It's GIANT SPIDER season!!!


Here's my fence. It's a bit wild and wooly in the front yard, but the new Cercis canadensis is loving it.

Also from the front yard, the real deal: Beware the guardian grass spider (and all her sisters):

I love spiders. Took me years to encourage my wife not to just smash them when she found them inside.

Again, great lens to get that level of detail on the spider & its webbing. Nice work!
