Nature? Hi...let's keep a safe distance

Well, I keep telling people how much I love looking at all the wildlife surrounding my house. It's not that we live in the woods or anything, but with very old, established trees....you get some interesting sightings. I guess we are close enough to the river that some creatures make their way up the road as well. Well, a few weeks ago, I went nuts when I saw this:

I heard a screech like the screech at the beginning of Steven Colbert's show. I went running out at 7 am in my Sloppy Joe's tee shirt and high school lacrosse shorts. This was not an eagle, as I somehow imagined, but an enormous hawk. If I had a zoom lens for this camera, you'd believe me that it was big. Speaking of big....

Ummm yeah. This was so gigantic that it caught my eye. Spiders do not catch your eye...they should blend into their surroundings!  So, you know this sucker was big. I am pretty sure that it is the spider that bit Peter Parker and made him Spiderman. And, what is it doing?!  Needlepoint?

Gertrude Roberta is just making an afghan for her soon to be colony of little ones. You know they lay hundreds of eggs right? Disgusting. I actually wiped clean all of Helga Josephine's eggs in the mailbox...I've already asked for forgiveness. And just the other day, I think I was given pay back as when I went to the mailbox, Eli and I were greeted by a very angry snake!
