Shelia's Lair

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”  - - J. R. R. Tolkien

Shelia is a grass spider that has set up shop under our bird bath.

At least I think she's a grass spider. Never got a good look at her. How do I know she is a "she"? Males don't get that large generally.

Thought it would be a shame to let such a good "set" go to waste.

Mind you I would have moved the figures closer to get a more dramatic effect but I didn't want to spoil the old girl's web.

Hope you enjoyed the photos and thanks for dropping by!


  1. Careful now. Using living models will lead to a whole new set of expectations of gamers out there...

    Although - nice to see you can get a game in the sun! We've heard rumours of the terrifying flaming orb of fire set in the sky here in England, but its never been seen before. I can only imagine chaos would ensue should the thing ever show itself...

    1. Ta!

      The flaming orb is evil. Your green and pleasant land would neither green nor so very pleasant if it appeared regularly : ) I have been sentenced for life to wearing a hat when I go outside due to the baleful influence of the orb!
