Tigrosa helluo

I am a fanatic about shooting macros of spiders. This big gal was a lucky find out behind the back shed. This large wolfspider was in between some sheets of plywood back there that. I got her to stop running to get a few shots. Also after I chased her for a bit I was even able to coax her onto my hand.
