nowq here we go again.... we had a big think about spiders over the weekend...:-))
lots of entries... so much so... I went to google and read about the wolf spider..
i.e. also tarantula....... they do come out this time of the year to look for mates...
the male comes out of hiding places looking for a female.... that is why there are so
many of them around... they bite... yes,, very painfull ... but not deadly...!!
beautiful shot.....!!

We have those here, too. They are rather large. And they JUMP! That's the scary part. You go to smack them and they JUMP AT you.
