Yesterday evening, after another perfect Sunday in Durban, South Africa, sunset at Glenashley Beach was a playground for the imagination.
There were 18 vessels to be seen on still waters, some full of cargo, others empty.
As the sun sank below the horizon, the shadows of each ship seemed to be haunting the calm evening, like lost souls waiting to be ferried to another world.
The windswept clouds mirrored mysterious shapes of unicorn, dragons and unearthly sea creatures.

This winter has been rather difficult for finding food for my pet spider, a Hairyback Tarantula, Champignon.
Her last proper feed was 17 July 2013, a fully grown mouse, which she was still eating over 24 hours later.
In the last 10 weeks, I have managed to scavenge and feed her small morsels.

Christmas Beetles (Cicada),
Yesterday, in Umhlanga, Durban, South Africa, my friend and I managed to catch a fairly substantial size Gheko.
I put it in the tank, and it was probably about 10 seconds, and my Champignon was feeding happily.
This morning, she was still feeding, and one fat and happy Hairyback Tarantula.
