They are lovely spiders. Huntsmen are some of my favorite things also so finding green ones was a delight.
No, I didnt move. There is some issue with the mapping thing and at the end it wouldn't accept my entries. Probably lucky it dropped me in NSW

You've left the beaches for the mountain, eh? Nice move. I long for the day when I can move from the city. And I do love the spider, and the red-legged one must have been awesome too. Not the usual huge hairy huntsmen we've come to know and love.

Thanks Neil. It is the second. The first had red legs I had never seen them before I moved here
