Not the best of captures, but I had to share this with you. She’s huge!! She’s been on my rosemary bush for days now. I’ll try get some better captures of her before she disappears.

Hint of a texture here to soften it up.
Nikon D90, 105mm lens.

    I can never look at these creatures without wondering how many lovers they’ve eaten lately! She certainly looks like a healthy specimen…

  • There was a male on the same bush, but he’s gone now!

    Getting ready to lay eggs maybe?? She is really large, thanks for sharing her. Good luck with the “Surveillance” Mia.
