The other night a friend brought around a spider he had found in his home in Thebarton, a suburb of Adelaide. He told me it is a type of funnel web spider, though not as venemous as the ones that frequent Sydney. We couldn't help ourselves, and turned the lounge into a spider studio. My apologies to those of you who suffer arachniphobia.
I think all of these photos except this one ...

... were macro photos. Which meant that I had to get fairly close. This last photo is probably the closest to the actual colours of the beast. To get it, I had to darken the exposure.

If you expand the photo by clicking on it, you might be amazed at the detail. And the red hairs ...
