Yeee Gads!

Yikes! What a huge Wolf Spider! There really isn't much in this top shot to give a sense of scale on this guy, but he's probably over four inches in length. I went out on the patio this morning to enjoy the cooler temperatures and rainfall. A little something grabbed my attention from the corner of my eye. At first I thought it was a Tarantula, but at closer inspection I discovered that its A Wolf Spider. The shot above was taken from out on the patio.

This shot was taken from inside the house looking out. I wrestled him down and escorted him to a safer location, as the neighbor birds were all looking lustfully at him like a lobster on display in a four star restaurant's tank.
