And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

The Huntsman

Video close-ups with music of a wonderful Huntsman Spider found east of Perth in Western Australia. Great views of his eight eyes and big black fangs.

Wow you've updated a lot since I last visited...........

I once camped for several weeks in an old derilict bus in the rainforest on the Atherton tablelands and it was full of these type of spiders............I'm not as hardened to it as you Antipodeans..........it was a bit stressful I recall......
