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.

Seen at my desk

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Afraid

Warning: Images that may scare some people lay ahead.

Do you think I am Naughty  posting things that some people may be afraid of?

She is quite harmless and is a good natural way of insect control around the house. I haven’t seen any Huntsman around the house for a while but the rains have come one or two may venture inside to get out of their wet environment.

Now is your last chance to look away.

 

 

Isn’t she lovely

Some of the things I have been contemplating on contributing for OWS perhaps can also be some of my Favourite Things as Patti from Ragtag asked.
Perhaps some of the small things in my world should be a start. The feature photo is a Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest honeyeater and a red jewel that flashes through my garden and the forest.

I love having Stingless Native Bees in my garden

Isn’t she a beauty. She lived in my laundry for a Summer and then came into the lounge and dining rooms for Winter last year. I think she became bored of my company and headed outside.170315_side view_huntsman_size
