AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Superb capture.

Great shots! I am not fond of spiders, but they make good photo subjects!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Truly creepy, but I admire the webs.

Spiders and insects can look a bit creepy when you come up close, but also facinating...I too just love taking photos of the little ones... :)

Their webs really are things of beauty -- and I don't mind the spiders either, as long as they are outside.

We've been so dry that we don't have many spiders. These are great (and creepy) captures!
