Gratuitous Garden Posting

A perfect morning for weeding the garden - cool and moist, and with all the rain we've had this week the weeds were practically leaping into my hands.

I noticed a very seriously bad-assed looking spider had set up shop on one of the Joe Pye. It is about three inches long including legs, which are black towards the end and tan towards the body. The body itself is black with a bright yellow pumpkin-shaped pattern on its abdomen. The thing was big enough to take down a honeybee, which it was doing as I watched. Personally, I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

Christ Almighty - first I get plagued with Sauron's Wraith Rabbits, now it looks like Shelob is taking up residence. What have I done to deserve this?
