Small wildlife

Here's a spider our friend Sean Brody took a photo of. It's the size of a fingernail but was building a massive web between two little trees.

On a similar but related note, Nate and I were looking at a similar spider -- it had stripes like a zebra instead of crazy horns -- on the fence at Nana's Lodge the other day, marveling at how cool and small it was. And then it ninja-jumped off the fence onto my shirt. My naturalist cool and safari girl calm instantly displaced, I started shaking off my shirt and shrieking. I don't think I've made noise about a spider in a long time...
