Wasp Spider

This was a first for me and was another great find by my sharp-eyed son. It was along the watermeadows of the River Ichen near Winchester. This is a large and impressive beast, apparently a female as the males are much smaller and more feeble.

Click it for a bigger picture if you have the bandwith and the courage!
