Arachnophobia/Arachnophilia

After a week of rains, the spiders were out on Saturday. Every fence along my route to Taipan Station as covered in spider webs. The dew had collected on them, making them shine in in the early morning light. The grasses were also covered in webs, like little parachutes resting on the grass. But look at the wrong angle and they disappeared in the sunrise. Once I got to TS, I was able to stop along the road and try to take some photos.

And then, I focused on the spiders. These are all different individuals.

On Sunday, I manage to catch one preparing a little breakfast snack.
