This little fella has no need to spin webs, he just scares the hell out of his prey! I was working in the gloom when he appeared on the wall over my right shoulder - yes, I did jump! He was a good 115mm in diameter (about 4.5 inches) and moved like lightning. He stayed long enough to pose for me but when I turned around he was gone...
Wildlife abounds here. Ants vary from nano (1 mm), through micro (2.5 mm) and normal (10 mm) to monsters (25 mm). The micro ants are the biggest pest in my house and are often on this table that I'm sitting at. I dread finding they've got behind my laptop's screen and died.
