I am still enjoying my holidays and today as we were taking a walk we stumbled upon this cute little critter:

A not so common sight, a male ladybird spider of the Eresus genus. Dunno the exact species, possibly Eresus sandaliatus.

FYI, only male Eresus spiders are that colorful, females tend to have boring ground colors.

Males live underground only coming out in summer to mate so consider yourself lucky if you ever see one. I am 35 and that's only the second time I get to see one, last one was exactly a decade ago!

And despite their bright colors there is nothing to fear, they are totally harmless. But since they are out to have sex better make em a favor and leave them alone with their horniness!

Feel free to learn more about these fellas at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eresus

It's a beautiful spider! I definitely have to make a suit with these colors to flirt this summer.

Lmao

@Trumpman many thanks sir,
Your writing talent has been great. There are several species of spiders. It is called small red spider in our language.
You inspired me to try to snap a few pictures of spiders that accompany me. Their love, it seems they are my friends.

🥰🥰🥰🕷️🕷️🕷️

I have spider phobia but it looks so cute lol

Horniness LOL 🤣 Tomorrow show us some Greek Birds, no albatross please. 😃

Apparently this cute male ladybird spider when it was young he ate his mother. Not so cute after all 😂

Most of our spiders are better left alone and any bright colors normally means danger. I suppose you had your eyes peeled to the ground looking for coins lol.

Lmao

horny spiders are cute and all but I want to see the chunky boy silver coin already

Wow nice spider. I see that's why it called ladybird. And it looks so fluffy !

🥰
