Spiders have fangs which inject poison into their prey,
and most kinds spin webs in which to capture insects.


Good morning….

…time for breakfast.






causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease.

Creepy…and my mind went to this image.

And the definition is exactly how I feel.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:  Creepy







I think this first shot is creepy enough.

However, when I crop,

effectively magnifying part of the image…

…and title in it ‘Breakfast’ its creepiness factor increases tenfold.

Just to make it clear, I do not like spiders.  🙂


Word of the Day Challenge: Magnify

One Word Photo Challenge-Monster






To me this is a monster…

See the little spiders getting a free ride.

I brushed one of these (big) spiders off

the front door a few years back.

Suddenly I had not ONE,

but several dozen little spiders

running around the floor.


Patrolling the catchment!



Come hither little fly.

Finally, the old tarantula, or huntsman.

Not sure if these names are

proper names for this spider.

However, particularly on the farm,

this spider would materialize from nowhere

and be seen hanging from the ceiling.

They seemed not to care whether it

was in the living room, kitchen or bedroom.

The also seemed to forecast

a cool/wet change in weather.


Not long after our move, I was driving along

a back road near Geelong and an oncoming car

veered off the road, pulled back on, spun around

and proceeded to cross the road in front of me

going backwards until it hit a post or something.

Mrs. Mid-Twenties had just collected her son

from kindergarten and reached up to

pull the sun visor down only to discover

she had another passenger in the car.

She said it had dropped between her legs

and asked me to have a look!!!!!

For the spider, I presumed.

Needless to say I found something else

to distract her and did not go searching

for spiders between her legs.

Odd Ball

Week 13, 2017


In my view these a creepy photos, however,

I am sure there are those who will disagree.

Not the greatest photo but it gives an idea

of what ‘getting ready for lunch’ means.

A wrapped meal.

Morning sun has made these images…

in my opinion.
