In great numbers and variety around my place at the moment.

These are harmless but they creep me out, the way they move is deeply unsettling.

This one I call Fatso because he (she?) only reacts to food and is quite placid. There's another I call Crazy that keeps escaping, that one's very skittish, probably still in my apartment somewhere. There's a larger one I saw in my garage a few weeks ago, if that's an adult I guess this would be an adolescent.

The way they move is indeed unsettling. Like the amount of awareness their eyes give them apex our own several times. Not some unprecise fly or mosquito that bumbles it's way to survival depending on sheer numbers.

The first one looks like an Orb Weaver of some type. I have fond memories of seeing a paddock full of webs on a foggy morning in Central Vic.

The second one looks like a Wolf Spider. They are quite interesting to watch when they are hunting.
