    Couldn't get this little lady to stay still long enough for a good picture.

    And this was the biggest of the three.

    No worries, they were just Nephila clavipes, Golden Silk Spiders. Though not poisonous, they can bite.:eek:

    Found this guy on his back in front of the shop. I helped him up and then accidentally, cough cough, stepped on him. Thought it might be one of those western pine beetles.

    Damn Shi, you got the coolest looking spiders down there. We got some ugly ass ones here, the black widows are awesome looking but I squash them as I find them. They're tough! I had an exterminator here once and asked him to spray under the rocks outlining the driveway because of the black widows. He tried to tell me we dont have them around here, well I flipped up two rocks before I found a BIG momma ! He sprayed the hell out of it, I put it in a jar so he could take it back to his shop( the guys there told him we dont have them around here). Not 10 minutes later that spider was crawling around the jar like he never got sprayed!

    I've always wondered how harmful those things were when out in the woods. They like to build huge webs across trails and stuff.

    Shihan, if you came at me with one of those things I would kick you in crotch. I hate bugs. One of the hardest things for me to get over in boot camp was laying on the ground and not moving while I could feel bugs crawling over me. I can still do it if I have to but I haven't had to in a long time so I choose not to. I hate bugs...
