This spider was huge. It gave me second thoughts about walking thru the grass:-)

yes
this is a gravid female. my father found one over the weekend too and he got scared. funny, i found the male not too far away drowned in my pool.

 
I found a male too
but this one was still alive. What a difference in size between the male and female. Thanks Omar.
