Hunter in the Lilacs


Hunter in the Lilacs

At work, I found this huge catface spider in the lilac bush when I was watering. What a beauty, more for the fact I haven't seen a spider of this sort for many years than actual beauty.......:-) Moved all over the yard during the year.

Thanks. I thought it was a real beauty, I never see one this large here. The grounds beyond is the perennial yard I tend, the shrub the web is in is in my shrub rows. I think it moved about and hunted most of the grounds as the summer progressed. Fascinating things, though they give me the creeps sometimes too.
