    We always called those ones in the first pic "banana spiders" because of all the yellow. They were also rather large, compared to most spiders around here. They would festoon the weeds along the edges of the cornfields where I grew up.

    I wonder if they taste like bananas?

    Whoops.

    Yeah, they can get pretty big. I've seen some in person that spin a web across a whole driveway, or between two trees.

    I think I've seen a few that were as long (end to end, including legs) as my thumb. Which is big for PA, even if not for Australia.

    Spiders are cool with me. Ones in the house get gently relocated outside. I also once found a wild tarantula in Belize and let it crawl all over my leg. I hate getting an invisible web in the face when walking through the woods though.

    Shudder. In the face or in the hair.
    Mostly because I know a spider might have been sitting on it and is now in my hair.

    Also, just glancing at this thread... I felt something on me and freaked out and almost fell out of my chair. I feel unclean.
