That's Some Pig, Charlotte

Look at the size of this spider... the picture was taken 1 second before she jumped and scared the living daylights out of me...
...closer inspection shows she's quite the clever spider and in the spirit of the County Fair!!

I have a real healthy respect for spiders!!! Could not have gotten that close...yikes!

Have a great day.

We have had spiders like that in Dallas too--but not nearly as talented as yours! Made me laugh, thanks---I am sure Charlotte is relieved!

Oh you are just too clever, Rachel. She's probably looking at you thinking "If I can pull this off I'm gonna eat like a queen all winter . . . Steady, steady . . ."

I CANNOT believe you got your hand that close to that NASTY, UGLY, MANEATING spider! I think there are meds for that...

Now how DID you do that??? Clever, clever, clever.

Oooh....that's SOME SPIDER! LOL I love Charlotte's Web! We had 2 of these spiders in our garden last summer! Wishing them were back this year, cause my tomatos are being eaten alive! Boo!

Okay, FOR SURE you have to enter this in the fair next year! They have a category for "experimental" photos! This is a sure winner!
