I took this picture of this large gray fellow on the ledge next to my front door last weekend. I don’t know much about spider species but I’m sure you can help me out.

Good thing I got his picture on Saturday, as I spent Sunday dodging tornadoes. Another great picture here. Alas, I didn’t see the funnel clouds, but as near as I can tell two of them straddled us. We came through fine, just a little hail on the deck.


  1. Beyond “some kind of Lycosid”, I got no clue. But big, fast American spiders that stride around looking as though they’re wearing the pelt of the last mouse they killed generally are from that family.
