when I spied this from the back door, I was ready to seal up the door until winter... luckily we have a 'hunter-gatherer' here who ran for the windex and spray bleach. this huge spider didn't drop dead, he ran away, but hopefully he found a peaceful resting place shortly after.... ICK. I don't even think you can fathom the hugeness of this guy from the picture. It certainly doe not do him justice, but I was NOT getting any closer for a picture. no way.
