Nursery Web Spider?
June 7, 2010
We found this, the largest spider I’ve ever seen, in the basement garbage can. We took the 2 photos (attached) then released her outside and took the third. She was over an inch long (plus legs).

Thanks for sending us your awesome photo of a female Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira, and also thank you for your sensitivity to creatures that many people find frightening.
