The same spider captured from below seems to be flying until you notice the tiny thread suspending him mid-air.

Came across this little fellow spinning a web large web across a bush road, fortunately it’s little used and I saw the thread stretching across the road as I was walking the dogs. He had a few butterflies and little insects captured and seemed very well feed – complements of his industrious building project.

Spotted this common butterfly resting on theĀ She-OakĀ spindles on the edge of the reserve, unfortunately it flew off before I could properly focus but its colour is lovely and I like the way it nestles amoung the spindles with their matching orange ends.
