Wow, what a beautiful spider this is! I found her in the woods in my parents' yard. The local people call them "Banana spiders". I tried to measure her with my finger, she was about 3" long from the tip of her front legs to the tip of her hind legs! The only other time I had seen one of these spiders was in the Everglades several years ago.
