"Too absurd"

“A THING may be too sad to be believed or too wicked to be believed or too good to be believed; but it cannot be too absurd to be believed in this planet of frogs and elephants, of crocodiles and cuttle-fish.”

~G.K. Chesterton: The Man Who Was Orthodox: A Selection from the Uncollected Writings of G.K. Chesterton, A.L. Maycock (Editor).


These peacock spiders are scientifically known as “Maratus Volans” and commonly called the Jumping Peacock Spider ranging 4mm to 5mm and have spectacular colors that shimmer. Their size is so small that almost 10 spiders can fit on your fingernail.
