The biggest spider I have seen in nature…in Indiana.

My family came to visit yesterday and as we walked towards Free Basket, we saw this huge spider on the path.  It had its legs tucked in, but it was still about 3-4 inches in diameter.  I cannot imagine how lard it would have been when his legs were out.

I tried blowing on the spider to see if it would walk away, but it was in defense mode.  I know it was alive because it kept moving its legs slightly.  Its eyes glowed in the sunlight.  What an amazing spider!
