We found a big spider

Spiders are air-breathing arthropods.  They are found in every continent except Antarctica.

Spiders mostly prey on bugs, but few large species prey on large birds and lizards.  Argh, that is scary!

Restoring a Driveway

Another excellent project completed by Simondale Excavating from Tyrone, PA.

I had never stitched images together, but I must say this tool is impressive.  The images were all various shades, angles, and since taken freehand, not straight.

However, see the result below…
