Welcome Home

This huntsman spider was on the wall of what will be my new bedroom:
His legs look quite dusty there. He didn't look that hairy in real life - or perhaps I just didn't get close enough!

This spider was at Lal Lal later in the day:
Fortunately I noticed her before I walked into her web. Possibly an enamelled spider.

Several of these were growing beside the road:
Presumably some type of puffball fungus, but I found it interesting that it was only growing in the gravel at the side of the road, and nowhere else that I could see.

A quick stop-off at Lal Lal Falls, where we can see that nothing is falling at this time of year:
