Rain Spiders come with Rain

While it is not raining as yet, another sign has arrived that rain is near. While putting my Vespa away I noticed a large spider on the side door. Taking a closer look it reared up in defence and that's when I recognized a beautiful Rain spider with a diameter of over 10 cm. Using a torch to take the photo did not do justice with the beautiful markings and colour. Matthew was keen on having it as a pet but I said no because it is better off keeping are garden safe from pests.
