I'm not bothered by spiders, but this guy looks ferocious! Excellent shots.

Scary. How thoughtful for hubby to bring it home.

We had something the locals called a "Mallee Mouse Spider" up near the Murray River. I have never seen one but they were brown in colour quite large and reputed to be venomous.

I love the reflections which just add to the terror value.

That is one super-cool spider. None around here that are half as fearsome. Excellent macro.
