Yesterday I discovered a huge, sprawling spider web in the garden and this lovely little guy getting his chow on. He is definitely an expert web designer (hardy har), he had bugs aplenty lined up for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I tried to get some pics without getting too close, the first one shows you his wicked cool colours, the second gives you a general idea of how big he is. Click on the pics to enlarge them, he's a real beauty (and this coming from someone who is usually screaming like a little girl when she sees a spider).
Any spider lovers want to tell me what he is? Or do I want to know? If you are going to tell me that he is a jumping, spitting, biting spider that can cause instant death, you better tell me fast before I stupidly try to take any more close-ups!
