Unlikely hero swoops in to save woman from giant spider
Occurred on October 28, 2020 / Landsborough, Queensland, Australia
Info from Licensor: "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."
