In Joe Re's Herb Garden






That spider was huge... but it was also dead. I wanted to get a close shot.. so when I finally realized it was dead it made getting that shot a lot easier.

That spider shot will have my skin crawling for the rest of the day...

Beautiful flowers!

I'm wondering if the spider molted (thus still lives) and that's just its cast-off exoskeleton.

Do spiders do that? Interesting thought. The thing was quite dessicated so that I could blow it around easily with my breath. But it was still a perfectly shaped spider. Seems unlikely to me that it would retain its shape so well if it molted.
