Don't Scream....It's only Halloween

This is one of the delightful little critters I encountered on a recent camping trip.  Don't let my chipper tone fool you, I'm being completely sarcastic.  I am not a fan of spiders.  Not even plastic ones.

I wanted to have evidence of just how big this spider really was, so I said to our friend who discovered the spider, "Quick, hold something up next to her so we can demonstrate how gargantuan she is!"

Our friend, who is well over six feet tall and a surgical resident, held up what was handy.  One of his fingers.

Hmmm.  Not quite the effect I was going for.  I should have held up my [short, stubby] finger, for a more dramatic effect, but there was no way I was putting my hand anywhere near that thing!

Just a little pre-Halloween fun for you, today!
