Surprising turn of events on a peaceful Saturday afternoon!




5mm long, 2mm wide + legs in all directions!

Kamikaze spider - saved from the toilet bowl - placed on the edge of the sink to dry out and catch his breath - when starting to feel dry and alive again, quickly moving to the edge of the sink from whence a daring jump was executed.

Long leg yellow gob, spider black gob!



Immediately landing the brave fellow in the net of a daddy long leg lurking in the corner - thanks to my reluctance to do much vacuuming, a very unsafe and webby corner for a non observant jumping spider at that point - and so, the big one started shaking the net, the little one getting helplessly caught, pulling his legs in, big one runs down,  wraps, picks up the catch and carries it dangling from a 'thread' to a more appropriate dining area and ......there it is....my valiant attempt from saving one creature from a sure drowning death in the toilet bowl leads to his quick demise in another situation two minutes later and a creature not yet observed by me feeling full and satisfied for the next little while.

  2. Yes Laura, definitely, it was just kind of 'funny' - all my 'heroic' attempts were squashed in a split second - micro observations at their best, Pia
