Hell, no I didn't take these! No way!!! There is not a big enough lens for me to take a photo of a spider!
A question/comment in previous post; No these are not just found in the U.P. The one that bit me was when we lived 380 miles south of here near Colon, Mi. There are a variety of wolf spiders and THIS is not like the one that we have in Michigan....at least not the ones I have seen. Our's are hairy sons of guns. And get quite large!!
One year when I was mowing the yard (on the rider) I thought I was avoiding running over a toad...turned out it was one of these things! THAT is big.
Another time, there was a HUGE one in the driveway that I was going "to save" to show Dan because it was so big. I went out armed with a shovel and a coffee can with a lid. I proceeded to try to scoop it up on the shovel and it started jumping up the shovel towards me! Didn't take long to throw that thing down. So I managed to get nerve enough to put the coffee can over it and hoped it didn't walk off with it. It was still there when Dan got home. BRRRRRRR>>
