The Bush - Part 7
On every almost stalk of grass there were Net-winged Beetles...... ...and almost all of them were in pairs and mating.
Needless to say there are lots and lots of spiders..... this one was huge, about as big as my hand and I almost walked into its web....
Most of them are Golden Orb spiders which are rather pretty....
...okay, I know most of you are not going to agree with that statement. LOL!!
This one had caught herself a fly for dinner.
There are other species around too but I do not have time to have them identified.
