Sleeping... by Basia McAuley

This morning I found this spider sleeping on my ‘honey pot’ poppy seed pods and so the next thing I did was get the camera out of course! This photo is 100% natural and untouched.

    Great pic Basia, not sure I’d fancy having them around too often, hope thats not the reason you need to move!

  • Thanks David! Don’t mind them at all and NO that’s not why we are moving ;o) The landlord sold the house from under us! :o(
