You are welcome. These spiders are frightening when they pop out of nowhere — but once your heartbeat calms down, they're neat to watch. :-)

Thanks, Sally4!

This looks like a giant crab spider. I'm not sure what species this is but the ones on the Sonoran Desert (AZ) are Olios giganteus. In Spanish, la cazodora del desierto.
