    First time I've seen one of these little fellas. At first I thought it was a red and black spider, which it certainly is descriptively, but they have red legs as well.

    So I think it is a male (and horny as he was on the prowl for a female) red-headed mouse spider.

    Ok, I'll ask, how do you know it was horny and on the hunt? Did it have a bunch of flowers?

    Just in case this is a serious question, it's spring and they usually hide in their burrows or under leaves and debris .... except ....

    First bike I ever rode.
    A mate turned up at my folks house one evening on one.
    I didn’t have a license, he said to take it for a ride.


    Up the street in what was at the time, a semi rural area. I managed to stop and then somehow do a 3 point turn and ride back to him. Foot gear change, hand clutch, what the hell !


    I was hooked.

    With a predominantly NW airstream and the Brindies to the west we get heaps. Often they'll seem to hover in the same spot just downstream of the ridge but in the right conditions the air porpoises and the clouds will form a long sea serpent shape.
