A couple weeks ago the kid and I were hanging out on a river bank and we wondered across this water spider.

Last week I was up in the mountains and tried to get a nice pic of this female bush (uliodon) spider but she bolted.

Normally I don't bother posting these types of pics here but last night I had a visitor that was pretty cool so I'm sharing.

This is a male bush spider or vagrant spider as some call them.
Being autumn here it's not that unusual to have the males cruising around looking for a partner.
Click the pics for a better look at his pedipalps and palpal bulbs.

I've gone to other countries before and I'll do so again, but if I ever go camping in Australia, I'm sleeping in a hammock with scented strings to keep the bugs away from me while sleeping.  :ahhh

Even in Australian "civilisation" it sometimes pays to keep the window locked.
Pretty sure she opened the window herself

I found this guy once, but I couldn't get the camera to focus, I almost walked right into him because his web was in the door jam,

Not mine, but had one when I was a teenager. Red kneed tarantula. My sister killed it with a big book when I didn't close it's terrarium properly and it escaped. It was great having two sisters who were scared of spiders and a tarantula that does a near perfect shed every time. The punishments were definitely worth the fun I had. Yes I was a little smurf to my sisters  :D

Same here.  I'm no fan of them, but my wife and teenage daughter like them even less, so I am the designated exterminator.....thankfully we get nothing along the lines of the beasts posted in here :ahhh
