OK, so I admit that spiders may not be the most popular creatures in the world. OK, so I admit that they weird me out more than any other creature. But you have to admit that they are remarkable none the less.
The Huntsman is the classic “there’s a huge spider in the bathroom” spider of our area. Their ability to move sideways into thin cracks is very off putting to say the least. I found this one loitering on a red brick wall on the way home – the bricks give a nice sense of scale.
At the other end of the market is this jumping spider I found on the fly wire of a window this weekend. It’s not large - maybe 10mm at best. It would have a hard job intimidating a rice grain if the truth be told.
So, you may not enjoy them – but I doubt you can ignore them either.
