This spider was lying in wait inside the flower of a foxglove with the ‘tug’ wire of his web held in his grasp so the minute it was pulled he could spring into action

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.

    I don’t like spiders one little bit (I know, they have their place in this world, but . . . ) but this ia very pretty one, Chris. It matches the flower perfectly. Nice image.

  • This one doesn’t spin a web – it hides inside the flowers of foxgloves and as you said – its camouflage is brilliant. I know you don’t like spiders but did you see the shot of this one catching a bee ?
