Spiders Everywhere

At this time of year we mainly clean up small patches of either geraldton carnation weed or veldgrass that have missed our attention during spring. I encountered lots of spiders whilst moving through the bushland, mostly small ones like this one, which was busy wrapping up a grass-hopper it had snared
We came across a flinders ranges wattle (unusual this far from Grace Vaughan House) and a crop of new fountain grasses coming up from where we had dug them up earlier this year.
This big spider gave me quite a fright when we met eye-ball to eye-ball. It didn't blink! It was about the size of my hand (with fingers stretched out).
