Finds while doing a little gardening

The frosts have stopped at last and so a little gardening was planned this afternoon.
Two interesting creatures were found in the process of cleaning up for planting.
The first is a Case Moth ( pictured below).

This little guy is of the family Clania Lewinni - the stick case moth an, although it favours gum leaves was found munching happily of a Raspberry bush.

Below is an arachnid ( and one of my favorites)

It is a Wolf Spider and this is crowded commuting taken to the max.
The mother will carry these spiderlings on her back and is most protective of them.
It was difficult getting this shot as she was very camera shy.

The weather continues to warm with storm chasing the flavour of the month.
Hopefully I will have some good lightning shots posted soon.
