Spider, man...



This is an image that often strikes fear  into the hearts of the strongest men(and women)!


I found these two outside our front door... 

Time to take out the macro lens and capture some images

I believe that this to be a rain spider, but I might be wrong...

We have some Peacock feathers next to the door... 

and it was using them as a "stairway"...

Or, riding them like a wave... 

DUMPED! 

Then, just like the nursery rhyme...

"Along came another spider"... 

"And sat down beside me" ... 

but instead of running I stayed.

Does the red "hourglass" on the abdomen mean that this is a Black  Widow?
No, it does not, but it is from the same family...
This is a Brown Button Spider

ESKOM(our national electricity supply utility) turned the power off...
planned maintenance they call it... 

I continued using two torches, instead of a flash. 

These are those images... 

Although rarely fatal the bite of this spider are incredibly painful
and medical attention is recommended.
