I’ll spare you all the gory facts on the Redback spider…. Google’s a good place to start if you would like to know the gruesome habits of these unsentimental sheilas ;)
I spotted this one in a not very nice place -perched up on the latch of the back gate – by the time I returned with my camera she had scurried on a little way.
I could not help but do a bit of selective colouring, her bright red slash was so vibrant I couldn’t help accentuating it by knocking out all the other hues =)
Taken with the 12mp DSLR Pentax (with a 50/75 lens, hence the slight lack of detail) and selective colour done in Adobe PSCS
