Comments & ID Thoughts

I’ve seen this (relatively) big spider two sunny afternoons in a row, seeming to travel from somewhere else over the patio and into mulch (wood chips) on the other side. Since it appeared to be a regular visitor, I want to make sure it’s harmless (besides the small heart attack I have upon seeing it, that is). Thx!
