THE CYCLOPS SPIDER?

No, this isn’t a terribly good picture.  And the lack of scale here prevents the viewer from appreciating this spider’s immense size.  (They’re huge in Southwest Virginia.)

But I still like the way that mark on its back makes it look like a fanged orange cyclops in this picture, don’t you?

My best guess is that this is some variation of an orb weaver spider, but don’t hold me to that.
