Now I know some people are absolutely terrified of spiders. But I love them. I think they are marvels of genetic engineering: perfectly formed for their function as a killing machine.
I really wanted one as a pet but I wasn’t allowed. So, I must make do with the hundreds that have taken up residence in my garden, weaving their webs everywhere meaning that I’m careful not to damage them as I wander around the place, watering and what not.
But it’s best not to get too attached to them as one morning they’ll be gone. Food for the birds I guess. Or other, bigger, spiders: the female of the species.
As you can imagine, they have been the subject of my photography interest and here are a couple of images from today. Look away now if you really don’t like them!
