Why I Do Not Live in Texas, part 3
This spider, a Death's Head according to my daughter's biologist friend, is currently about the size of a silver dollar, and has built a web three feet in diameter.
It is building this web on my daughter's porch and she has enjoyed watching it work. Contrary to the recommendations on this spider guide:
she is leaving the spider alone. She has named it Vincent, although it is probably a female.
A large female. I bet it is waiting to have babies, zillions and zillions of babies.
