And because I know some of you are creeped out by spiders, I’m putting it behind the cut (for those of you on the RSS feed, uh, sorry):
Ain’t she (or he, it’s not like I know) a beauty? This one’s been hanging out on our front porch for the last month, catching all manner of flying insect, which we’re happy about. I don’t suspect it’s long for the world now that fall is here and the temperatures are dropping, but until then we’re happy to have it hanging out. Watching it do its thing is better than the Nature Channel.
Krissy has already noted that if it gets it into its arachnid head to try to come inside once it gets cold it’s going to wish it stayed outside, but I don’t think it’ll do that. It’s too big to slip under the door in any event.
Also, if anyone knows what type of spider this is, please tell me. I’m interested in knowing.
