Water spider at Dick’s Creek – 14.10.2021

We came across this big fella yesterday. A water spider I believe. Very large, over ten centimeters. I could see why some of the kids freaked out when they saw it.

It is hard to get perspective from a photo so I took some video but unfortunately the quality was less than desired.

Great to see different wildlife inhabiting the creek though.
