    I helped a buddy mix concrete today, and while I was there he showed me this spider that was hanging out in his garden...
    I don't know what kind it is, but it's markings are real cool.

    We found a grass hopper & fed it to him. He made quick work of it:D

    Oh, and here's the 30 bags in the back of my truck... It was sagging a little in the rear with all the 2400 lbs in the very back.....

    I do agree, I hate spiders more than anyone (except my wife) If I had that crawling on me I'd scream like a little girl:eek:

    actually, those are quite common down in Ontario Canada. i saw my first one last year and once i knew where to look they were EVERYWHERE. they get to be a good size and kind of freaky looking at first. once you get used to them they are quite cool...
    yes, i am quite spider nervous...

    My 5-yr-old son is heavily into butterflies, constantly catching them and releasing in the house. He's caught/hatched a couple huge moths, largest in N. America, they look like a large, hairy spider with wings. My wife and older kids won't get near them, they do look creepy. Saturday he caught a Praying Mantis, now that's cool! We put some bugs in with it and were rewarded with carnage. I've heard bee keepers lose a lot of bees to these monsters, we have plenty of bees, I'll give that a try.

    Ummm, yellow garden spider? At least that's what I've always called them. They are good for the garden, and cool to show people. Grown men screaming like little girls ... that I have to see.
