For a country that is home to 9 of the 11 most venomous creatures in the world I can't quite understand the trepidation with which Australians regard the European Wasp. I found a Red Back spider (Black Widow family) in my garage this afternoon. If I had to get bitten, I would definitely rather the one that doesn't have 8 legs! Anyway, oh to afford a lovely Nikkor macro lens but alas this was cropped from a shot with my 35mm prime, my only lens until today. Have to start somewhere though!
