A (seemingly) Big and Beautiful Spider

Avalus has sent us some wonderful photos of a spider he found in his parent’s garden.  Photos are under the fold and you can click for full size.

…Then there was this spider, patiently waiting for prey.

    Yes, it does look bigger than that! I was approximating its size in scale with the leaves, which must be smaller than I thought. It really did look large to me. I will make a slight adjustment to the title. (I occasionally suck at titles.)

    @ Jazzlet:
    *whispers* True! I meant to write “from the perspective of a small insect” ie prey, but I got lazy. So it was deserved to whisper me out. :D

    Thank you voyager!
