A Giant Among Spiders

A Giant Among Spiders

This is not nearly as defined as a Peter Hillman or Mike Powell insect image. However, a spider that drags around fish and frogs is not to be trifled with.

This is a Fish Spider, named such because of their diet.

Using a long wildlife lens I could not get closer and still focus. Not that I had any intention of.

I did take a number of shots from different angles, hopefully Ellen caught some decent images.

BTW, hold up your hand for a size comparison.

    1. As big as any I have seen in the US. Two things, I do not like spiders, and I didn’t know they were here. I know the habitat of the others, and watch for webs. No web with this big guy 😳. A true predator. Uggh
