I found this guy lounging on the back porch on Monday, just chilling in the corner. I made sure the dog left him alone and allowed him to stay as long as he needed to before he headed off to wherever it was he needed to go next.
Found this guy on our back porch tonight. He’s just a bit larger than a quarter — perhaps the size of a half-dollar. We think he’s a trapdoor spider, but it’s unusual to see one out and about. They normally hide in their hole, behind a trapdoor, waiting to snatch prey as it passes by. So no telling how he ended up on our porch — perhaps something ran him out of his lair?
