This is Crumpet. He is a very large spider who has set up his home on my front porch. He is about the size of a silver dollar, and I am fascinated by his habits. He only comes out at night, and he generally must rebuild his web every evening.
If I get too close then he scampers up to the top of his web and seems to play dead--it is so cute!
Anyway--I have grown kind of attached to him, and hope he sticks around
