At about 0630hrs this morning I was alerted by a “plop” sound to the materialisation, next to my foot, of this Huntsman spider (Isopeda sp., probably Isopeda villosa).
In the minute or so it took to find and deploy the camera the spider had climbed up to the ceiling again, and I thought I was going to end up with nothing useful but the three photos below:
But I managed to persuade the spider to climb onto a duster, which allowed it to be relocated it to a brighter area.
The photo session was abruptly dissolved when the rabbit decided to investigate this intruder into his domain.
Spidey is now hanging out on the ceiling of the study.
