The Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge: Short Legged Birds

It’s very close and scary

Jude’s 2020Photo Challenge #38: What’s the POV

This post contains a close up of a spider so if you have any phobias, please close this post to exit and seek help or listen to a bit of music to relax you if you would absolutely dare to go further!

This week's assignment - Shoot your subject from below. Looking up will give the illusion of smallness (the viewer). An upwards angle will make the subject seem much more important.

Thank you brave soul who has ventured into bushboys world. I found this HARMLESS Huntsman Spider in the wood pile. They don’t have webs and rely on their lightning speed to catch their prey. Huntsman Spiders can run at sixteen of their body lengths a second and that’s the slowest one of the 95 Huntsman species found in Australia.

It’s in the feathers
