I was travelling down the road at about 85kph on the way to Lake Samsonvale today when this guy appeared on the windscreen right in front of my face. Gave me quite a start until I realised it was outside the cabin. Luckily, we had the windows up and the a/c on, but getting out of the car at Lake Samsonvale proved to be interesting, since we no longer knew where the spider was.

Kara and I both grabbed all our gear, openned the doors, dived out and shut them again very quickly. I then spotted him on the drivers side rear door.

Kara also shot this spider.

    I see Kara got a lot closer than you :-)

    Ah, well Kara has a 3x zoom on her little Kodak, and I was shooting with a 50mm prime ;)

    Besides, I don't like spiders.

    oh yuck, eeee, etc.
    I'd have freaked so much I'm sure I would have crashed the car!
