    Hi Mick,

    What a lovely creature - my wife would agree with your wife however on the
    matter. Many years ago living in "Leafy" Lindfield here in Sydney I woke up
    with a Huntsman (spider) sitting on my face. In the ensuing moments, I
    managed to knock the poor bugger onto an adjacent wall, almost removing my
    nose in the process. After that I was wide awake, fully alert and ready to
    greet the day!

  3. My St Andrews Cross webs are a feature at one spot on the Manly To The Spit Walk
    in leafy Balgowlah.....!

    Aaaah, now that's a lovely walk I must say. I've done many an early morning
    run around such places, including along Davidson Nat Park etc. to be the
    surprise catch of the day for a number of those St Andrews hopefuls.

    From a distance it must look perplexing - a guy jogging (semi) normally -
    suddenly stops and goes into a wild frenzy of arms and legs - rather like a
    crazed yabbie - proceeds to jog on - suddenly stops and has another furious
    attack of the arms legs and shaking head - jogs on etc.

    Those little buggers can be a bit intimidating crawling through the hair in
    the semi-darkness while covered in a mesh of stickiness!

    P.S. I've always wanted to go to Dobroyd very early to get some sunrise
    shots but haven't yet had the conviction to get up at such a hideous hour!
