Here are various spider pictures I’ve gotten over the Summer.  Some were taken at night at Elk City Resevoir, using a hand crank LED flashlight to help with lighting.  Others were taken in the yard, or at Elk City during the day, I also got pictures of a *MONSTROUS* Wolf Spider and its prey at my FIL’s house.  (The spider wasn’t killed, the dowel rod is an attempt to show size. Its diameter is about the same as a AA battery, maybe bigger. That is a rather large cricket it has carried up the door.)  I will be merciful, and put the photos behind a “cut” so you won’t have to look unless you want to.  ETA: Forgot to put in several!  *BLUSH*
