Large brown spider with blue pearl egg sack
March 31, 2010
Last weekend when the weather was hot and dry I decided to weed-whack all the tall weeds in the driveway. Upon completion of the task, my eye caught a blue pearl scooting along the cement. I quickly grabbed a camera and snapped 2 shots. The spider was a brownish color, appox 1.5″ dia (including leg span). A co-worker said it might be a brown recluse? Dude, I hope not!
