This morning Mike agreed to come with me to the park near my office (it’s Saturday). The place is just crawling with little jumping spiders. I think of the place as a wee little spider treasure trove.
We found some straight away. Mike quickly tired and lay on a grassy hill in a sunny patch. The park is quiet, with a rush of water to drown out the sound of the local traffic. It’s really peaceful there.
I did a few slow laps in search of more spiders and eventually settled on the grass beside Mike. We spoke of this one jumping spider that has been eluding us for a few years now…
The peacock jumping spider. Have you heard of it? If you’re in Perth and you’ve seen one, please get in touch. I am so keen (as is Mike) to see one in real life. Where might we find one? I’m always searching…and now Mike is too.
