Looking for slugs in my garden, I found this big spider, instead:

She's probably a Philodromus, a running crab spider of some sort. It's hard to be sure, because a defining characteristic is that the second pair of legs is longer than the first. And all she's got in second place is a broken stub.

One advantage of having eight, I guess; she's doing fine with two gone.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
