A bookish spider

Indulge my anthropomorphism for a moment …

“Know thyself”, wrote Plato, and this little spider is perhaps taking it to heart, trying to read a scientific tome.

"So many insects, so little time!"

But it’s reading the wrong book – the CSIRO’s “The Insects of Australia”. Perhaps I’ve misread its intentions, and it’s really trying to research its lunch!

    Hi Joy, great shot of the wee spider. I saw the biggest Red-back at Coonamble last week when I attended the Moorambilla Festival. http://www.moorambilla.com/galleries/

      Ooh, did you get a photo? I’m happy to post it if you did.

      I’ve had to order a replacement digital camera as “old reliable” has developed corrosion on the button you press to take a photo – probably due to all that salt water on fingers at the beach. A new camera is cheaper than a repair!
