For a grown man, I have an embarrassing aversion to spiders and large insects. And one thing that the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney has in abundance are spiders, hiding ninja-like among the trees and shrubs. The Golden silk orb-weavers are known for the big intricate webs they craft, which turn golden yellow under the sun. This particular specimen spanned larger than my palm, and has a clearly visible skull on its head. Enough to send chills down my spine even though I stood far far far away.
