With apologies in advance to any readers suffering from arachnophobia, here are some images of spiders we have encountered on our travels.

Spiders are often seen as you wander through the Australian bush, often greeted by an expletive as you blunder into their web and wonder, for that horrible moment or two, whether you have a spider in your hair or on your clothes.  Mostly they are benign creatures, although we do have some particularly venomous species in Australia such as the Funnel Web.  Fortunately, we haven’t seen any of them as yet on our travels.

If you can set aside any fear you may have of spiders (as Nirbeeja is trying valiantly to do), you might appreciate them for the beautiful and industrious creatures that they are.
