Our new "porch" friend



This guy suddenly appeared about four or five days ago and has been here ever since. Beautiful but very scarry too!




EDITED TO ADD:

A friend of mine found this species online for me. You can read more about HER...yes she is a female not male!

Christy ~ we had one of these on our garage a couple of years ago. The girls LOVED to watch it. It lived there all summer until it layed it's eggs and vanished. Scary I agree ~ but what a beautiful thing to watch.

I think my farm background is kicking here as well as my 'Nana' status ~ if we do not know what it is, we should get rid of it in the event it bites some little curious fella. Yikes!!!

AAAAAAHHHH! If I ever saw that spider in real life, I would turn away and run! I'm such a wuss... but that's seriously creepy. Ewwwwww.

Hey, I'm just wondering if you're getting any of my emails??? I've sent a few lately, mostly replies, but I'm getting the feeling they're not going through. JLMK...

My husbands grandparents have these all over their property. His grandmother likes to feed them grasshoppers. It's so neat t watch but I HATE spiders. It would have to go.
