Thanks for the ID on it as well. I don't what any of these backyard finds are, I just really don't want to get bit or stung in the process. I had a "moment" the other week. I went out in the woods looking for stuff to shoot in my backyard and when I came out I felt a tickle on my neck. As I turned to the left to see what it was, a massive black and yellow garden spider went from my neck to my left cheek and my eye.
Being the man of nature that I am, and with my camera strapped to my right hand, I proceeded to punch myself in the face with my left hand in what I could only describe as "seizuresque" in style while the woods echoed the loudest F bomb ever.
I really didn't want to kill it, I just FTFO in the moment as I saw my life flash before my eyes as a spider was about to be on my eye. I have chills while typing this.
I never harm bugs unless very poisonous or if they attack my face or junk. I really need to learn what is all in my area a bit more. So long as I can keep some space between us, I'm good.
