Since moving to Florida, I've had the opportunity to see some pretty enormous spiders. Golden-silk Orbweavers and Black and Yellow Argiopes are pretty large, and they're spectacular-looking as well.

Of course, not all our spiders are huge. But whenever I have the chance to get close enough to them for photographs, I'm always struck by the beauty of these creatures. I know spiders freak some people out, but when you have the chance to look at them carefully, they really are a wonder to behold.
