Genuine Long Island Spider
Just one of the many photos I took.

I've been seeing quite a few similar looking spiders out here on the west coast this time of year. As long as they remain outdoors and a safe distance, I'm okay with them. But sadly, I am a typical female when it comes to spiders!
breal: spiders are mostly harmless. Although, I think my kids are too squeamish about bugs. A few years back, I caught a Monarch butterfly and put it in Jason's hand. He looked at it for a few moments and then dropped it to the ground and promptly stomped on it. I think it was dying anyway, since it did not attempt to fly away when I plucked it.Post a Comment
