i was attracted to the markings and size of this cat face spider. it was about the size of a silver dollar and the abdomen was about the size of a nickel. it was huge (although i have seen some bigger in the yard). after i took some shots, i went inside and showed rin the images. she was kinda startled and then asked "did you kill it?" i am under strict orders to kill any of the eight legged freaks that inhabit our backyard. rin does not like any of the arachnid species.
"uh, no. it's the last one."
her reply? "i want you to kill it. i don't care if it is the last spider on earth."
it is still out back...awaiting its fate.
