Spider blogging

I was just outside splitting some wood, when I discovered the biggest spider I've ever seen. Naturally, my first thought was to share it with the blogosphere. It was inside a rotten log and somehow it survived the axe blow. Spiders give me the creeps. Brrr.

I don't care if you've seen bigger. This is Canada, not South America. We're not supposed to have any ookey creatures like this wandering around in the wild...

What was its fate?

It hid on me when I put the photo up, but I found it again when I moved the piece of wood. Yerg! Then I tossed it into some leaves under the trees where it sits now. It's probably had a lovely life sitting still and eating wood grubs and is in shock at the cruel trick life has dealt it. Bad Karma to squoosh it, I think, plus we'd get rain...
