Evenings find us listening to coyote howls, owl screeches, coon chittering. Living in the country, everything is either hunting or hiding.
I’ve been watching this gal for the last few days. Photo is blurry cause I was on telephoto from about 2′ away…and not very stable. That’s as close as I care to be.
I’ve seen her with a grasshopper twice her size and tonight, who knows what will be on her menu. I hate spiders, but have been assured that the Wolf Spider’s bite is painful and mildly venomous. I’d prefer to just watch her hunt, lol. I don’t want to be her prey.
That’s a 2″x4″ board she’s on, so you can gauge her size…the body is a little over an inch and with those long legs, she’s about 3-3 1/2″ long! She can run really, really fast! She lives under our front steps.
We have a pact…you don’t sneak up on me and I won’t feel the need to stomp on you.
