A Large Spider

By | August 24, 2020

This large Spider was on some weeds on the side of an Arkansas country road I was walking. Sometimes I wished I could show you sizes of the subjects I photograph.

I did an online search to get an ID on this spider but I was unsuccessful. If you know what it is, please leave a comment below.

Note: I posted this photo on Facebook and I was informed that this is a Carolina Wolf Spider.
