Never sure which spiders I like the least. The hard black shiny ones, or the soft hairy brown ones. The black ones always look more dangerous, poisonous (maybe thats just because we have red backs here). Yet the hairy ones always seem more creepy. We have a lot of webs outside the house at the moment. When you walk out at night you have to swing your arms in front of you to avoid a web being wrapped over your face. I've never managed to convince my kids that the best way to fix that situation is just to reverse out of it and it comes off nicely. They prefer to do the scream and thrash about solution that only traps you. See thats the whole point of a web kiddies – to trap things that are moving about.
This spider I found out the front fits in the prickly spider category. He's an ambitious builder who is taking up a lot of room.
Here he's either clinging on or doing some repairs – he's always up to something. You can see his little leg with the web on it.
Here is his funny little body that I almost want to touch to see how it feels. Almost. I think he was running off to hide from me.
And here I was trying to get a look at his Bum Spinner. Thats what I call it anyway but the text books probably don't. Lol maybe it's just his Bum Hole.
And here is a leaf that has been built into a web. And all the little crusty bits of dust that have stuck to it. This web grows bigger everyday but I'm yet to see the spider that lives there.
