It finally happened. I found a jumping spider who stayed out in the open long enough for this wobbling body to take a photo. I probably should have used a tripod – but lucky for me he was very obliging and let me take quite a few images (many of the shots were very blurry!). My balance is way off at the moment.
What I also loved about spotting this spider yesterday – was the fact that there were about 25 babies on the leaves surrounding it. They were so small and translucent…adorable little things.
A short side note – now that we’re in NZ – I decided to reinstall Instagram. You can follow the account here.
We saw a film yesterday – a Kiwi film – which I can’t rate highly enough. We were in tears laughing… If you get the chance to catch a screening of The Wilderpeople you must. I promise it will tickle your funny bone. And whilst I never do this normally – I found myself quoting some of the best parts and reliving the hilarious scenes with Mike well after we’d finished watching it.
Moving onto the evening, I headed over to Feilding (a small country town near Palmerston North – which is actually where Mike grew up) to take some photographs for Mike’s Aunt Lynda. She’s supporting a friend whom is having treatment, with a group of friends and family by shaving her head. It was really touching to see the support and love – I really enjoyed that everyone had a bit of a chuckle during the proceedings and how many put thier hands up to shave was impressive. It was an honour to be asked to attend.
Lynda if you’re reading this – you look wonderful.
