    When we used to off road motorcycle on the trails in the Nat'l Forrest we would encounter these same big spiders. They always creeped me out!!!

    I hope they don't inflict a nasty bite...It is huge..and you have a really great photograph showing its size. This would be great for the Creepy Theme.

    I guess I could tolerate a spider more than a snake......your capture is awesome!! My boys, when young, used to catch crickets, and throw them into the web, to watch the spider hurry over and quickly roll the web around his meal.
