A large spider, about the size of a quarter, brown. It appears to be attached to a round white mass...possibly an egg sack?


New raised flower bed which contained dirt only.


I was in the process of planting flowers and saw what I thought was a white piece of potting soil material. I touched it with the trowel in an attempt to remove it and it moved! I realized it was attached to a darn good sized spider. My action was the only one I could take at that point....I ran for the camera.

Great photo. Well, you will have lots of little ones to eat up all those cicadas we are supposed to get in abundance this year.
