Spiders anyone?

Interesting isn't it how the internet makes the world smaller?  I was blogsurfing tonight and ended up at Greg's place.  He had a post on misplaced spiders in Australia which I've not seen reported here.

Apparently the floods over east have unsettled a number of wolf spiders and they've taken up residence above ground in such numbers that their webs look like snow - 

Yes folks, that's spider webs that you can see there.  Anyone want to go for a walk? 

Full story and more amazing pictures can be found here.

I saw that. Gave Irish Woman a case of the heebie jeebies. Reminded me of something I did when I was in the Army. Did you know that large spider legs, roasted over a fire, taste kind of like a cross between crab and shrimp?

I believe I'd probably invest in some pesticide.

Yecchh. I know spiders have their place in the ecosystem, and I thank them for eating other bugs, but... Yecchh.
