Rhododendrons in the foreground with spires of yellow flowering Wachendorfia thyrsiflora In the background.
#289 A very pretty, tiny spider hiding amongst the petals of a an iris. I think it is waiting for something to eat.
Some Garden pics from this week just after the Bunyip Garden Club walk through.
I'm beginning to think that the spiders in the garden change with the seasons. I am seeing rather elegant spiders with delicate patterns in the webs in the shrubs now. This spider is as pretty as the Australian native shrub (Common Fringe Myrtle, Calytrix teragona) in which it has built it's web.
Yet another Huntsman near the vegetable garden. This one is guarding her egg sac which could carry up to 200 babies. There shouldn't be too many flies around my house this summer!
This looks like the Badge Huntsman that crawled out of some hydrangeas that I had picked earlier this year. This one was nestled on some garden stakes near the vegetable patch so I wasn't able to see the shield on the underside of the abdomen but I think you'll agree they are very similar.
