Yikes!

So, it was dusk and I was having a wonderful time photographing the Sydney Opera house from across the harbor.  I was standing near some bushes, and happened to look about 8 inches next to me, and to my horror, I saw this huge spider.  After I jumped about three feet I noticed there were about 6 identical, huge spiders right near where I was standing.  It gives me the creeps just thinking about it now.

Welcome to one of our many creepy crawlies. Actually this one is harmless whereas we have some poisonous ones too. I don't like spiders either. You were calm enough to take an in focus shot. I think it is called a Golden Orb Spider. Did you notice that it's web is like a golden thread and the web is messy and made in a type of orb shape.

Only three feet! Great capture of the creepy spider. You will find them on Antelpoe Island during the summer. When you get back of course.
