27/08/18 - new spider added - Chris Moody

Whilst getting the BBQ ready (for the first BBQ of the new season no less) I happened to see something moving on the BBQ cover, out of the corner of my eye. 

I quickly saw it was a spider, and recognised that it seemed to be moving like a jumping spider. However, on closer inspection, it turned out to be another new species (to me at least) - a "fleet footed spider," or "spotted ground swift spider".

It was certainly quite colourful, and was obliging enough to stick around long enough for me to go inside and get my macro photography equipment. The bright orange legs on the black textured background of the BBQ cover are certainly quite striking!
