The biggest...

....spider I have ever seen in the wild...





It's probably 3" long. And the web is probably close to 1.5' in diameter. It's attached to the corner of my chimney and house...luckily it's around the corner and I can't see it. It's impressive, and beautiful - but I'm afraid to try to kill it because...well...i'm just chicken. As long as it stays there...it can live.

I think that is awesome! Have you tried to figure out what kind it is? I think you should name it.

Naomi - I thought of you when I saw this spider...that's one reason it's still alive...I tried to look at the beauty of it. I can't bring myself to name it...just be impressed it's still living!

I feel good that through my blogging, I have saved the life of an innocent spider in North Carolina.
