All the cool guys are blogging about spiders and I want to be cool so here's a really bad shot of a big bad ole boy who hitched a ride with me the other day. I have it on good authority that this was indeed the dreaded brown recluse. This was unequivocally confirmed by my intrepid savior who went out in the rain and squished it for me.
This is not the first time I've had a spider take the big ride out of town on my car. I'm always amazed how they can hang on, literally by a thread, at 50mph. This is first guy who got so scared he crapped on the window though. That's the big glob of white stuff towards the bottom of the shot.
