11 Jul, 2012

 

I don't mind spiders either - it's toads that give me the creeps!

11 Jul, 2012

 

Hello Sheilar... I have thousands of them :) Amazing when I think how many bugs crawlies are in my little yard.

I've not seen a toad for years W/Rose.

I was lying reading in bed the other night when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. Next to my head on the pillow was a big black spider!! I carefully got hold of him and put him out of the window. When I told the women at work, they were squealing in horror!!

11 Jul, 2012

 

Sheilar . . . you are BRAVE. I'm with the squealers, lol!

11 Jul, 2012

 

Spiders move thats what gets me!

This one is one of the jumping spiders 'Marpissa muscosa' Drc.... It leaps on it's prey, with lightening speed.

11 Jul, 2012

 

Aww, Denise, they're harmless (unless you're a fly!!)

11 Jul, 2012

 

You must send some of these piccies off Pimps, they are fab! :-)

11 Jul, 2012

 

It's not very good Willi , Google jumping spider and see how cute they are.

11 Jul, 2012

 

What you on about? its a great action pic & the green background of shiny leaves, excellent.

11 Jul, 2012

 

Jumpers, I wont be able to sleep tonight now!

11 Jul, 2012

 

Do they have 4 eyes or are they large nostrils, Lol

11 Jul, 2012

 

spiders have 8 eyes willi!!!

They have eight eyes...First they calculate the distance of their prey, then they spin a bungee line of the right length just in case they miss. Then they leap up to 40 times their body length. They can take prey bigger than themselves.

11 Jul, 2012

 

where did you find this one pimms?

11 Jul, 2012

 

This is on my tree fern Stiki.

11 Jul, 2012

 

8 ! 8 ! They look like buttons on his coat, Lol.

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

 

OMG completely traumatised....I have faced many fears head on (was standing on 20 beer crates the other day at a team building event and I'm scared of heights). But the eight legged horrors give me the heebee jeebies big time, def not following this thread anymore!!

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

 

Yes, near the tips...She is not very big just over a centimetre.

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

 

Don't mind smooth things such as snakes, but anything multi-legged and furry...... :0

11 Jul, 2012

 

Don't you get Skink's where you are Lil ? That would be a great pic

11 Jul, 2012

11 Jul, 2012

 

Great picture!!!

12 Jul, 2012

 

Wow - I like the Skink almost as much as my blue-headed lizard :))

(Is there ANYTHING Pimm's doesn't know about the natural world??!!)

12 Jul, 2012

 

blimey great pic Pimms,

12 Jul, 2012

 

Incredible pic - that you happeend to be there with camera ready at the right moment is even more incredible. This sort of thing happens all the time, everywhere, but how many people manage to get such excellent pics of it??

12 Jul, 2012

 

Had to stop reading this when I reached the spider on Sheilar's pillow! Fantastic photo and fascinating creatures, but they 'freak me out'.

12 Jul, 2012

 

Excellent shot!

12 Jul, 2012

 

I truly don't get fazed by many animals, and have stroked a cheetah and cradled a python, but spiders!!!!!!! It's irrational, I know, but I HATE the bu**ers. I can sit and watch 'em for hours - they're really beautiful, but if it moves a muscle, I'm out of there, and have been known to scream a lot, too while I'm running! It's the big, black, beefy ones I particularly hate. This one's quite cute.

14 Jul, 2012

 

Totally awesome! :-))
