You never know what you'll run into when you go to the NC Arboretum in Asheville, NC. I was in the main building standing off to the side when I heard this big HELLO. I jumped as I didn't know where it came from, sounded close by. It turned out to be a beautiful parrot named "Sunny", he was a personality guy.
We have a huge garden and lots of Black Widow spiders which my son assures me are very non-agressive. I've never encountered one this big. What a great sculpture at the arboretum.
