These ones are big, but harmless.
Ahh… So sweet… I like spiders. They are as unashamed about their hunting as pussycats are but not so deceitful as to pretend to be friendly. (I like pussy cats too though, the evil conniving little devils). I used to keep pet spiders as a boy. They seemed to like me (perhaps because I brought flies to their little home in my room). I don’t like flies.
I don’t mind spiders but I still, after 40 years of living in Sydney, don’t know which ones are dangerous. These ones are fine. They mostly stay in one spot. 🙂
Is this for real? Very nasty.
Yes, it’s real. It won’t hurt you, unlike some other spiders down here.
I woke with spiders, big ones while living in Israel many years ago. I don’t like them and don’t appreciate the memories being jogged.
That’s perfectly understandable!
But thanks for the surge… one of the best times in my life so far.
I’ve been told that there are no poisonous spiders on Vancouver Island (and I’ve been told the opposite!). I have often removed spiders from the house by putting a long-handled wooden spoon next to them. Quite often, they obligingly climb onto the spoon and I can then deposit them outside, where hopefully they will eat aphids.
Very co-operative spiders you have there!
Je ne savais pas que les Araignées aimaient prendre des bains …!!!
Neither did I. 🙂
nice graphic quality
Thanks, Graham. 🙂
Thank you, Mark. 🙂
Eeep! i didn’t know Huntsman spiders weren’t poisonous… i learned something. But i still don’t want one in bed next to me!
I had a terrible dream once that there were hundreds of spiders in my bed with me; I woke up brushing them away and yelling ‘get them off me, get them off me!’.
Big spiders … one reason Australia is not high on my list of places to go … that and snakes…
Cool photo though ….
These ones won’t hurt you. You know, I’ve been here for over 40 years and I’m not sure if I’ve ever even seen a red back, a funnel web or a trapdoor spider. The only things that have bitten me are mosquitoes. I haven’t seen any snakes either but my sister and nephews have. I haven’t seen any koalas in the street either. Actually, when we came here, I didn’t expect to see any kangaroos bouncing down the road, but I did think I would see koalas sitting in the trees of suburbia.
I think it is fair to say that I am the kind of person that would step off the plane, and be immediately surrounded by every poisonous spider around. Of course, even the one in the photo, that won’t hurt you, is still too big. If a spider is bigger than the point of a needle, it’s too big. 🙂
I don’t like worms. Big cringe factor there, for me.
Very early 60s cinema style atmosphere well done. 🙂
As a consequence of milder winters our spiders are surviving longer and as a consequence now have the opportunity to grow larger. It seems that some are producing a bite that can produce a burning rash. Thankfully the snow-wyrms are mostly imaginary. 😀
