Victim of the megaspider

It's frustrating when a giant spider catches your subject matter.

I can usually blame the bear guards, because that rectangular frame of spikes seems to be perfect spider habitat.

In this case however there was no bear guard.

The camera was staked among some ferns on a bank, and the spider also caught several hikers.

I can pnly conclude that the hikers were filling or caused indigestion, because the spider went away.
