A Large Spider

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.

Eastern Bluebird With Spider

Last year I posted a photo of an Eastern Bluebird with a large spider (Eastern Bluebird With Large Spider). This year I photographed another Eastern Bluebird with a spider. I see them bringing in lots of spiders to the nestlings.
