Twosome No.3

Today I came across another couple of Hunstman Spiders in a cuddle, this time in my garden shed. Until this year I’ve never seen them like this however it is apparently part of their mating ritual.

“In the genus Isopoda, the male and female Huntsman spiders have a lengthy courtship, which involves mutual caresses” – See more at:

I’m NOT looking forward to millions of baby spiders around our place!

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

    1. I get the feeling I’m not the one finding them, they’re lurking in places they know I go, just waiting for the opportunity to creep me out.

So, what do you think?
