Ground dwellers

In the web

New South Wales. Cane toads on the wane. No sign of crocodiles. But not out of the woods. Funnel web spider territory. Deadly bite. Ground dweller. Just like yours truly.

Wondering what one actually looks like? Sorry. Absolutely no idea. Instead treating anything with eight legs as hostile. Tables excepted. After all, how sure would you be to dismiss a spider as harmless? In the confines of your tent? In the pale glow of a head torch? I’ll send flowers.

[And the spider in the photo? Like I said, no idea…]
