Itsy Bitsy Spider

I was collecting morning glory seeds this afternoon and almost grabbed this monster spider who was perfectly hidden as a clump of dried leaves!

Yikes!

That is by far the scariest thing I have ever seen in my whole life. Where did you find it?

OMG! It's a tarantula. Yes? No? That' one scary spider.

he looks kinda fat

Maybe he was all puffed up from the cold. Kind of like birds get.

He was in the morning glory vines. I think his abdomen is about the size of your thumb nail.


All an all, a pretty successful spider!

cool... you wouldn't have seen it otherwise, what are you collecting morning glory seed for? , if you don't mind me asking

John Britt said...

Well, if I were interesting...I would say I collect the seeds and make hallucinogenic tea but since I am not that interesting...I collect them so that I don't have to buy them next year. I want to cover the studio in vines and each year I get more and more.
