…also know as a ‘Writing Spider’.
I named her “Chuck” and she has just laid an egg sack about the size of her abdomen. Chuck has been living on my back porch for about 8 weeks now. I have watched her grow from a tiny little thing into a beautiful adult. She ate two males before mating with the third. I’ll get a pic of the egg sack tomorrow if I have time.
I wish I had some ‘L’ glass to get a sharper image of her before she dies at first frost…
