    Lycosa tarantula

The spider is only blurred because, if you look carefully, you will see she is carrying her eggs in a cocoon at the back by her spinnerets, but before laying eggs she spins a web over the top of her burrow for protection. When the multitude of babies hatch she then carries them on her back for about a month until they are big enough to eat her and leave home.

      

    Upupa epops


The equally silly name for this is the Hoopoe!! Although it isn't the best quality I thought you might like to see a 'local' Hoopoe.
