Four-and eight-legged Critters

While chatting to a visitor n the veranda outside my shop last week, I spotted a movement across the road. Behind the fence of a large conference hotel, a deer was grazing peacefully. I pointed it to the visitor who was thrilled to see wildlife strolling around freely. 

 Gemsbok grazing along the main road which leads to the mountains

 Back home, my intrepid critter watcher, Missy was on my bed gazing fixedly at a spider! 
The spider was quiet small so I wonder if it's offspring
 or the male counterpart of my resident spider 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen, here



  1. I could never ever never sleep in that bed or stay in that room knowing those spiders live there.. yikes.... I would love to see a Gemspok with my own eyes. he is beautiful or maybe she is.

  2. Hello, love the pretty deer. Their antlers are interesting. Missy is a great critter watcher or finder. I am sure the spider stayed far away from Missy. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend! Happy Easter!

  3. Hello. Nice serie of critters. The spider has interesting looking legs.

  4. I don't like the look of that spider. Yikes.

  5. Lovely too see the deer grazing close at hand Jo.

  6. The gemsbok is a fascinating critter.
