Comments & ID Thoughts
This spider has been living around our front window for the entire summer. Each morning I run into its web as I leave for work. Didn't think much of it until we saw its actual size. I submitted a photo of a close up in hopes of having an accurate identification. I took other photos to show its actual size. The main body of the spider was the size of a quarter. This is the largest spider I have seen in 30 years living in Alberta.
