A Royal Palace in Falkland, a Folk Museum in Ceres, a National Trust Mansion House near Cupar, Balmerino Abbey, Lindores Abbey, Newburgh, Dunbog, Glenduckie, Creich, Birkhill, Ballinbreich, Abdie, Upper Flisk and more in beautiful North East Fife. Also the occasional wander.

Spider North Fife
Spider North Fife, this one lives in the workroom and has done for at least 4 years. He/she has a leg span of about 6cms, down its funnel hangs a golf ball size cluster of assorted insects all nicely wrapped up in web. Not visible during the daytime so last night I took a gander, about a year ago I removed the web platform, not nice really though it has now been replaced and extends to over 90cms. I abhor killing of any kind, the house is largely insect free though arachnid rich.
Click on the image to enjoy its hairy legs.
