This spider decided to take up residence in a hole of one of our old maple trees. Very large spider for this area.

I can just see Tammy stomping all over this one. I know this is a closeup, but that is one big spider. Love its position and the title. Fantastic up and personal look my friend.

That guy had a large place there in that tree and looks like he's guarding it to keep it for himself and his dinner guests. Great find John

That's a big spider for ANY area, Tammy...well, except for the few tarantulas I've seen around here in TX. You've captured great detail here, as well as, wonderful textures. Like the way he blends in, colorwise, with his surroundings! Good eye - great catch!
