Spider Alert

Thought I’d warn everyone about the photo I’m going to post just in case you don’t like spiders. I’m not the sort of person that will go picking them up. I mostly try to take them outside if I find them in the house, but not these.

That is a red back spider, hanging off a photo in the hallway. I found it there yesterday, so after finding it, my first response was not to remove it but take photos. It isn’t as clear as I would like, mainly because I wasn’t game enough to get any closer. That’s a large one and it was about 2cm or 3/4 inch in length.

It isn’t there any more. There was no way it was staying in the house.
