Backpacking, But Not Alone

I recently found this large spider on the inside of the screen porch. When B came, I showed it to him and asked him to assist me to get the auto(only) focus set.

Here is the picture cropped in. It is not a great shot, but you can see her numerous babies a little better. It makes me glad to have removed her outside the screen porch when we did.100_1872

Look at that face. Tell me she doesn’t look tired!
