Last night, around twilight, I was walking around our backyard and happened to notice that the banana spider that I had spotted a few months ago, living on our yellow canna plants, was now rather gigantic. To give you a reference, her body is about two inches long, with the span of her legs being about four inches. Last night, she had just begun wrapping her dinner – a small fly – and when I returned this morning, she was nearly complete. What a cool creature!
