A couple of people mentioned that the Huntsman spider post didn't give an accurate potrayal of the spiders actual size because there was nothing to compare it with so here's a photo of two Huntsman spiders on an adult sized Akubra hat.

Now stop your bloody whinging and don't come crying to me if you have nightmares.
They're bloody massive, they look like they could be responsible for a small percentage of Australia's missing backpackers but sort of getting used to them now. Not that I could touch one but I can at least control my bowels when one of them wanders across the posts at work.
This photo was taken when the lads at work spent the day putting them on their Akubras and wandering up and down the rows with them. I just kept my distance and took photos, politely declining their kind offer of Huntsman of my very own.

Anyway, tomorrow will be my last day on the vineyard and I have a feeling its going to be the longest Friday in the world.

Please send vodka and cake.
