What's so special about this spider?
Well, firstly, it's really tiny - about the size of a pinhead. Even if
you're looking at this on a smartphone, you can probably see it larger
than life size.
It's also pretty cute. Sorry arachnophobiacs.
What makes it special to me, though, is that it's the hundredth species of spider I've photographed at my house. Sorry again, arachnophobiacs.
The diversity of animal life that's all around us never ceases to amaze me, but I've been stuck on 99 spiders for quite a while so this made me happy. I'm on 558 insects, so let's see how long it takes to reach 600.
