Argie Contender?


We have a new garden spider (writing spider) hanging outside of our screened porch. He's beautiful, but intimidating. I think he would make the perfect Argie for Delores. I didn't have the courage to get right up under him this morning to take a picture of him against a sky background. If only I had a remote for my camera. I have a huge respect for spiders and their place in our ecosystem, but found myself getting a little too short of breath trying to get up close to him. He's probably about four inches in length.
