Structure / Order: Weekly Photo Challenge

The challenge this week is ‘to share the structure of something that is typically overlooked.’

“What kind of flower is that?” I wonder, as I spy crumpled pink on the footpath.

“O, oh. Is it dead?” I zoom in.

A couple stops to find out what I’m photographing and before I can say anything to them about poisonous … , he’s picked up a broken branch to touch …

the spider … which grasps the proffered twig and hangs-on in mid-air, while being carried to a near-by tree.

Here it stays, held fast by eight skinny legs – an impressive structure!

Not really scared of spiders … am fascinated by their differences, their webs … their ingenuity and their persistence.


Tiny spiders like these surely have a sense of humour –  ‘Moustache’ Spiders?

  1. OH, Meg! I’ve heard that Australia has the ten most venomous spiders in the world (and also the ten most venomous snakes and sea creatures.) The photos are fascinating, but I must admit to keeping my distance from spiders whenever possible. You are a daring soul!

  2. Eeeek!!!! I don’t normally mind spiders, but this wee chap, or probably chapess, is a bit of a beast! It reminds me of how I would have imagined Shelob, out of Lord of the Rings 🙂
    And this post has answered my question from a comment you made on my last post, Meg, you are an Australian lass 🙂 Certainly not many dew drops to photo in your neck of the woods!
