The Scariest Photo I’ve Ever Taken

Okay, maybe the title is a little intense…Seriously though, this may be the scariest photo I’ve ever taken due to size of the subject.  It was possible the largest I’ve ever seen, and the without a doubt, the largest this early in the season.  She was at least palm sized with her legs, possibly larger.

Here she is, the jorōgumo…
