There's this spider by my back door that I've been meaning to take pictures of for a while now. The trouble is, it hides during the day and only hangs around (pun incidental) at night, and I suspected that the vinyl siding near it wouldn't care for the flash.
That said, here's my making the best of a bad situation.
Spider! (cropped, and I measured one of the slats so as to get a feeling of perspective)
Yes, its leg-spread is such that it probably couldn't comfortably stand on a Kennedy half-dollar due to the coin being too small. It's just outside the window that we have most of the swamp tanks in front of; with the 24/7 light coming out the window (and the night insects that attracts), it's prime real estate for spiders. I'm expecting it to be at least half-again this large by the end of summer.
