Comments & ID Thoughts

I don't quite remember all the details. I do remember that it was very big. Located in a clearing between two wooded areas not too far from the bayou. Not sure why I chose this crazy angle, I think I was actually a little scared that it would jump on me or something because I had never seen a spider this big in real life. Looks like he has a web, but is to the side of it and not actually in it.
