Not disturbing just nature!

Is this spider as big as the one in your previous post? I can't believe it's body is 1.5 inches... that's a big spider.

that is an excellent series of pictures. I love nature... do you remember last summer when I posted pics of a female spider eating the male spider just after they mated? That was so intriguing to me...
