I went out the back door to shake a towel that I’d gotten some debris on… and saw this amazing beautiful argiope spider. She just showed up here… how, I have no idea – she must have just hiked it in.
She’s HUGE. Two and a half inches top to bottom, two inches side to side. For a sense of scale, the thing she’s caught in her giant web is a WASP. Not a great big wasp, but still, it’s not a little bug.
