Dallin spotted this huge, enormous, freaky spider right outside the back door today. Yes, it was on my PATIO!!! I was afraid if I got too close it might grab my camera and take a few pictures of me screaming. I have never seen a spider like this in my entire life. The pictures don't do him justice. He was all silvery and hairy. Ewww!!!
Just for some perspective, the little Mayfly in the bottom corner is about double the size of a mosquito. This spider is big enough to be my uncle!!!
