Spider at the Front Door

It's almost as if I actually heard a knock at the front door, when I opened it and saw this. I was amazed at the size of, not only the spider itself, but of the full-blown web. I knew I had to capture this moment. Getting in close was the scary part. I mean, maybe these things are black-belts and can leap 30ft through the air. Who knows... I was able to get off a few shots, and then suddenly, it looked up at me and opened it's mouth - almost as if it had enough of me - giving me a warning to leave before he gets all ninja on me. My entire body filled with chills and fear, but I got the shot, which is what you see here. Then I happily, and quickly left.
