    Wandering Spider and her Flys

    At first I found her in the SW corner of the garden, then the middle, and then she was to be found in the NE corner. She’s been making her way around.

    Seeking, or rather feeling, her way around in the performance of her function. Filling a niche in the natural landscape, doing what spider does.

    The last morning I saw her she was plainly visible, bright yellow on strong pink, and then a young butcherbird came and landed by my shoulder.

    So I hid her in the flowers, and she went on apparently uncaring of the danger throughout the day. And disappeared that night.

    There are a number of these crab spiders, of all sizes and shades yellow to white, some with distinctive black tattoos.

    And there’s enough big blue flies to feed them all, coming from my neighbours dogs run.

    Flies will be flies too … dogs will be dogs.

    Welcome to my garden, said spider to fly. As she held out her arms to embrace ...


    But fly was too busy preening to hear her, and went about his merry way.


    Spider is in no hurry to gather her visitors, being strong in her patience.


    Fly is proud and confident of his escape abilities, with wings of steel.

    Watch out fly, she's almost upon you. Time for some aerobatics.


    And someone else can take the fall, another kind of fly.


    So she moves on, one thing leading to the next.


    Another time, another place, another fly.

    Looks like they are no longer searchable then, or they've been deleted. Only 4 threads to my name here - https://www.photoforum.com.au/search.php?searchid=15518 - 3 of them in the birds forum.
