Saw this big guy in Mary's garden. He has some nice color to him! Sure hope he isn't harmful to humans, because my hand was very close for this shot.

It certainly is huge Jon. Excellent catch AND photo technique.

Can't remember where you're located but this might be of interest: http://www.uky.edu/Ag/CritterFiles/c.../crab/crab.htm

Post it on bugguide.net it is an excellent specimen.

Oohh, nice! Both my wife and I were impressed with this shot! I liked the way you framed the flower in the lower left corner. It kind of looks like the spider might step off the flower and out onto the screen. Really nice shot.

Love the shot (and I don't like spiders!). Interesting colors - wonder what type of spider he is?

Thanks for the compliments. I tried my best on the composition because it was really windy and the flower with the spider was bouncing all over the place. I was afraid that the thing would land on my hand! Thanks for the link, it is definately a crab spider. The first sample shown on the site looks exactly like the one I shot. I don't like bugs much at all, but had to share this one!
