Carolina Wolf Spider

The largest “Wolf” spider in North America, up under the eave of our house yesterday:

Hard to tell how big it is.  Here is the best I could do standing under the spider, holding the camera in one hand, and reaching up with a wobbly ruler in the other hand, hoping I didn’t knock the spider down on myself:

As you can see, the spider is roughly four inches across!
