once again i find myself out of town on webnesday, and this time i didn’t quite make it to the interweb punctually enough.  hopefully i can compensate in future weeks – i’m in wellington visiting the national museum, and chances of me scuttling into the spider collections for a side tour are high!

in the meantime i will carry on the australian theme from last week – tomboy sent me these photos of a lovely huntsman (family Sparassidae) she encountered some time during her early weeks.  looks like this one had seen some tough times – it’s missing two legs (‘just an insect now’ was the wry comment from te papa’s spider man).
