Dolomedes Fishing Spider

Big One!
Mornin’ Bugman,
This large an’ lovely critter was in the bathroom basin last evening struggling to escape the slippery slopes. Before retiring for the night, I placed a piece of rough cardboard in the sink and, when I checked first thing this morning, she was gone! Success without squirming on my part nor injury on the spider’s part was achieved. Of course, where she is now is the question of the day! 😀 From The Great Smoky Mountains…

Hi R.G.,
The Dolomedes Fishing Spiders can sure be frighteningly large. Thanks for the anecdote and wonderful accompanying image.
