No? Well neither did I, until it was almost too late. Let's look a bit closer:
There's a potential danger there, but it's too early to tell. And if you're not expecting anything, you won't see it yet. Well, get ready for the big reveal:
Eeek! There is definitely some arachnid potential going on there. Lucky for you, there is still plenty of distance between us and the large creepy-crawly object. Unfortunately, I did not have the same advantage a few moments earlier.
See how he's definitely under the overhang of the carport? A safe distance from the typical passerby? He's also curled up a bit, getting ready for a nap or something. Again, this was not my original experience. When I first encountered him, he was more the size of this:
And he was dangling in mid-air, well away from the carport overhang. He was shoulder height, smack in the middle of the sidewalk. And I didn't see him until I was literally two inches away. TWO INCHES. Not only that, but he was not curled up. He was stretched to his full size, which is anything but small.
After I realized how close I came to having this guy as body jewelry, I ran home as fast as I could and hopped in the shower.
Half a bottle of soap and several paper-bag breathing treatments later, I grabbed my camera (with the awesome zoom lens so I wouldn't have to endanger my life again), and documented the evidence for all to see.
It was a very close call.
