A certain amount of peril was involved in taking these photographs. Not Temple of Doom level — although a Kookaburra was calling in the background — but enough to make me tread carefully. It wasn’t the dozens of spider webs on the ground that made me cautious, but the Garden Orb Weaver webs to left and right, each about half a metre across with anchor threads as tough as marquee guy lines.
