I have a son who is a entomologist so we are always on the lookout for bugs, spiders and other creepy stuff. We spotted this guy in a tree in my sisters yard. To give you an idea of the size of the spider the hole in the tree is larger then a baseball.
It appears to be a wolf spider and possibly a Carolina wolf spider but without hands on look I cant tell for certain. At first I thought it was a fishing spider but the web ruled it out. It is female and it is about to have a bunch of young'ns.
I was out walking the dog on a local GL.
down by the river I found a bunch of glass beer bottles in a fire ring.
finding trash is bad but I despise bottles being left as I worry for my dog as I went thru picking up the bottles I found this guy
the rolling rock cans and Newport boxtop give it good scale
