Why do they pick on me?? I am now guessing that although poisonous they are not aggressive or I think the one today would have bitten me!! At least most of them have been smallish, the one at the beach had been on steroids I think, it was huge!!!

I'll shut up now


Good to see that Pete did not hide behind you!!
