The Spider

When I first went outside, I caught the sight of this spider out of the corner of my eye. To me, a spider that is large enough to cast that visible of a shadow behind it is too much for me.

Getting 'brave', I changed lenses on my camera and went out to zoom in on the spider. I still haven't identified it, because the belly was to me. I don't know what the back of the abdomen looked like.

Any ideas?

I for one am proud of your achievement. Anyone who's as admittedly afraid of spiders as you are is fully deserving of praise for coming close enough to take a picture, even if it was with a 300MM lens. You've done well, as we say in the Army, here's an official "Atta girl".

My fear is/was snakes, still not overly partial to them. I remember the overwhelming grip of fear when my then girlfriend and I went into the Reptile Room at a major Zoo.
