Doesn't look too scary until I tell you he is perched atop a 2 foot tall fern! My heart skipped a beat when I first noticed it ... big as the back of my hand when I make a fist.

I have not been able to successfully identify the species but have been told it might be a Wolf Spider. The web it's weaving is erractic ... I think he's in his last days.

    Yikes! Leggy fella, isn't he? It does resemble a wolf spider. They can get pretty large. Great photo! The contrast and lighting is nice!
