Guarding The Nest! - Massive Spider - NZ by 


If you do not like spiders this one will reinforce that fear, she is larger than the last one!
I spent most of the day weeding the greenhouse and garden preparing the soil for new seedlings so that we have fresh home grown organic veggies this summer. I was amazed at how many little insects and creepy crawlies have made their home amongst the veggies. It is one place I can weed without having the three chickens under my hands scrapping for any little creature that dares to moves. Armed with my camera, bucket, spade and kneeling cushion I found this young lady guarding her sac of eggs on the garden fence. She was the biggest spider I have ever seen in New Zealand. I think she would have taken up the palm of my hand if I had the courage to hold her. I felt she may be a little aggressive given she was guarding her eggs. I will keep my eye on her and see if I can capture her with her babies when they hatch.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
