Face of the Day

A new species of Peacock Spider was recently discovered:

A fleck-sized jumping spider resting on a yellow leaf caught the eye of Stuart Harris while on a bushwalk to Boroomba Rocks in Namadgi National Park.

A keen amateur photographer, Mr Harris was experimenting with a new macro lens and liked the contrast between the foliage and the spider’s markings. And, as millions of photographers do in these digital days, he posted the photograph on his Flickr site.

“I though it was an interesting photograph of an unusual spider, and hoped a spider expert might be able to identify it,” he says.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
