Spiders Blanket New South Wales Garden in Intricate Webs

Thousands of spiders covered a man’s back garden in Kinchela, New South Wales, in an intricate set of webs after heavy rainfall battered Australia’s east coast.

Kinchela resident Matt Lovenfosse recorded footage of his garden covered in webs after the spiders emerged from nearby Kinchela Creek in a bid to escape rising floodwaters.

Lovenfosse previously posted footage of thousands of spiders in his back garden as they scuttled to safety.

Weather warnings and evacuation orders were in place for swathes of New South Wales late in March, amid days of severe flooding in the state. Credit: Matt Lovenfosse via Storyful
