Meet Eriophora

Eriophora (Araneidae formerly Argiopidae)is a largish orb building spider with a web over a meter across. This one is just near our mail box. She eats her web every morning and reconstructs it every evening. During the day she tries to look like part of a cluster of dead leaves.

Kayak from Bobbin Head to Cottage Point & return.

Took about 3 hours to do the ~10K return trip. Most of the trip I managed to maintain about 6.8 kmph. One stop for a bite to eat and a drink a bit before the halfway point and another to retrieve my sunnies which sank in about 3m of water - so I got to practice a wet entry.
I'm a bit stuffed.
