Each day (or nearly each day) I’ve discovered a number of curious little bugs that live near our house. The West facing side particularly has yielded a number of jumping spiders and strange critters. It’s a bit like a treasure hunt, Wesley will go down for a nap and I have limited time to get on my knees and start peering at the sand and soil.
The images above are only from the past couple of days.
The grey flat jumping spider looks almost like his tush was squished. It was found by Mike in the kitchen. Keeping it safe from harm (Wesley) I transported it to the yard and took a few snaps as it scuttled away.
The lycidas scutulatus was found in the front yard on a warm sunny morning. I think it might be a female, but it’s an uneducated guess at this stage!
