The SCARIEST creature in my Garden

I can't take credit for taking this picture. Number One Son has been watching this enormous spider, weave an enormous web , and EAT enormous amounts of "food" aka flies and unfortunate bugs that have come across this "Spidernator" ..
I was saying " don't let it touch my lense, or anything on my camera" .. total chicken**** that I am about anything buggy. So this truly is one for the Halls of Halloween Bugs .. or should I be totally correct and say arachnid of the SCARY nature ? ugh !!!!!
