I noticed a number of my loyal followers (deep thanks everyone) area from overseas...me living in Australia. My decision to share a photo I took of an Australian Native...the Kookaburra has been received well.
Sometimes I take for granted that I live in an area where I I see such beautiful native species, I feel in the mood for sharing lately and sharing the enjoyment that it brings.
What I'm sharing now is a photo of an infamous native Australian spider - The Redback Spider (Latrodectus hasselti). Named for obvious reasons this spider has a striking red marking on its back and its extremely toxic venom.
...The specimen shown below was captured in my very own backyard area.
Enjoy at your own risk :)
