Ewww. This thing is in the planter in our backyard:
Granted, it's not HUGE or anything. About 2 1/2 inches or so across. But still, that's plenty big for a spider, if you ask me.
I wanted to get closer to take a picture, but I was so afraid it was going to jump off its web on to my face and start chomping away.
I am not a meal, Mr. Spider. No sirree.
Welcome to my Labor Day. Please enjoy the festivities. Or lack thereof. :D
