Friday Photo: Arachnophobia

Each Friday I’ll serve up a photo and give you the story behind it. This week, a surprise visitor at my door.

With the Peace Corps required screens over my windows and front door, I don’t have too many critters coming into chez-moi. But one night this spider was hanging out right near the handle to my front door. I actually opened and closed the door without realizing it until my neighbor pointed it out and knocked it off with some (surely highly toxic) bug spray.

    Looks like a scorpion carrier…transporteur as the Burkinabe call it. Gross!
