The same spider captured from below seems to be flying until you notice the tiny thread suspending him mid-air.

Came across this little fellow spinning a web large web across a bush road, fortunately it’s little used and I saw the thread stretching across the road as I was walking the dogs. He had a few butterflies and little insects captured and seemed very well feed – complements of his industrious building project.

The wallabies have a different body shape to the kangaroos, they are smaller, rounder (little bit like an overweight dog) and considerably shorter with wider ears, a much coarser looking coat and of course a very long tail. Because they are shorter than kangaroos the tails can be as long as the wallaby is tall as you can see in the photo above.

Living amoung the groups of eastern-grey kangaroos at Look At Me Now Headland are more solitary red wallabies, smaller in statue as the name suggests they have a reddish tinge to their coat and little black ‘mittens’.
