Spider day: Eriophora transmarina (again)

With summer comes a host of these Australian Garden Orb Weaver spiders. They weave their very large webs at night and go hide during the day until alerted to the presence of prey.

You like my face. You know you do.

This big cutie built its web on the hills hoist on a hot windless day in March 2013. That was nice.

One of its relatives has decided that the main entrance to my house is an appropriate place for its home, and I keep walking into it. That is annoying.

The lunch has been wrapped into a neat package and is unidentifiable; it’s probably a fly or a bee.
