Welp, would have been time to buy a new car…but then..
“I was traveling down the mountain from Maleny in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland when I saw this huge spider in the rearview mirror. I pulled over to ask a tradesman to knock it off and he took one look at it and said, ‘hell no!’ I kept driving hoping to send it flying, but it just kept wandering about the back window. I got out and turned on the camera, in case everything went pear-shaped, and as I worked up the nerve to do the swipe, then in flew my unlikely ‘hero.’ A Magpie, the torment of cyclists across the nation, dove in front of me and snatched the spider for his midday snack. I love birds.”
