Phew... almost half way complete on the Ultimate Blog Challenge...
See this little baby... yes... he's a baby... and building his nest on the wasteland
that is my front porch. Interesting.
At least he is to me, a Brit in South GA who is somehow still unaccustomed to all
the critters around here, I'm sure there are no spiders this size in rural
Wiltshire.... you know....near Stonehenge.
I was brave enough (or stupid enough) to get these pictures and then
destroy his web with a broom and sweep him off the front porch.
Why? you ask....Why deprive him of his lovely home?
Because soon he'll look like this.....
I know... scary freakin' monster spider!!!!!!!
Apparently they are harmless, I took this picture today at a lake where we
went fishing, we counted about nineteen of them!!!
No one was harmed, they didn't chase us or try and trap us in their
queen sized webs, they were just very interesting to look at.
We all squealed a little when there was one dangling overhead and we had
no choice to but run under him... eeewwwww... other than that
it was an opportunity to take a great picture!!!! They are actually almost the size
of my six year olds hand.... for real!!!!
I'm becoming quite the critter clicker, who'da thunk it!!!
