the land of the eight-legged monsters

I went hiking in the “wildflower reserve” at Raccoon Creek State Park this weekend… I think it’s the third time I’ve been there and there is an astonishing lack of anything floral, which is quite shocking since you can drive anywhere and seen zillions of wildflowers along the side of the road in Pennsylvania. Either way, it is quite a lovely area and the hiking is nice because unlike some regions of the state “moderate hiking” really means “moderate”! On this little trek through the woods, I spotted an abundance of eight legged critters… so I had to shoot them all! Here’s just a few of my favorites– the ones that were kind enough to sit still for a moment and smile for the camera.
