I never said beauty always needs to be viewed close up.

I think spiders are often beautiful. Snakes, too. I've happily patted and held semi-wild carpet pythons.

Slugs .... no .... icky.

From their close-ups I guess Impress and Undertoad. I think MTP. And me. We're coming out of the woodwork now, fixing you with many many eyes

It's not snot! He he. Slugs are in a constant state of orgasm. Think of it as jizz.

You're twice as beautiful out of snakeskin.

I have a good aussie spider story for this thread actually.

The place I lived in when my boys were little and I was still with their father was in an area where redback spiders were common, so I went on a bit of a search and sure enough, there were a number of them in cracks and between brickwork etc.

I went and got myself some insect spray and proceeded to spray the little suckers and did under all the edges. Out the back, we had a screen door and the lip of the step was constructed of folded aluminium. I sprayed in one end of the lip and about a dozen of the little buggers came running out the other end.

This wouldn't have been such a big deal except that I wasn't prepared for it. I was wearing thongs (flip flops) at the time and a number of them crawled right over my feet. fortunately they were in too much of a hurry to get away from the spray to worry about biting me. Needless to say, I squashed them all.

Now that is lucky.
Blimey - an afternoon's spider hunting ends up with you with 12+ redback bites... Nice. Ambulance for Trish!
