Spider Love pt. 2.

it was another huntsman.

this one was not fully grown. it was about half way there, lacking the bulk of the adult kind, and appearing slightly pinkish in shade. obviously puberty had just begun, as hair was bursting along its spindly body.

anyhow:

it came rushing up the windshield of my car today, as i drove through traffic. truck, truck, car, motorbike, huntsman! i flipped on the windshield wipers, but alas, the cunning thing fled into the bowls of my automobile to lay its eggs or copulate with a female huntsman, who will eat him afterwards.

it happened once before, and for weeks i was squashing tiny huntsman hatchlings as they came out into the world.
