’I’m gonna reach out and grab ya’……as the song goes.

One for Christina and all LOTR devotees, as this reminded me of a relative of Shelob!
Actually just an innocent little Orb Spider, hoping to catch a few small flies in his web.

NATURES PAINTBRUSH

I am a keen amateur photographer enjoying wildlife and nature images taken in West Somerset and on Exmoor.
I am a grandfather and enjoy my reclusive life on the edge of Exmoor, among the wildlife, birds, and nature.
I hope to learn more skills and techniques from some of the amazing artists on this site.

    Thanks, Dave! Large size would be a Shelob!! Fascinating and beautiful in a way, but still gives me the shivers!

  • Yes, maybe this is one of Shelob’s grandchildren ;-). Quite harmless though, and also good at catching little aphids which can affect the rosé bushes and other plants.
    All the best, and thanks for the wonderful meerkats!
    Dave ;-)

    Wow! This one looks like it has thorns on its legs. They must use those little spikes for holding on to their prey. :o)

  • Spikey little fellers, aren’t they, Bunny! But they are only small. I think the spikes help them to climb as well. Strangely beautiful ;-)
    All the best,
    Dave ;-)

  • Thanks kindly, Thea, not as cuddly as your wolf (the one that nearly ate your camera;-) but spiders are unusual little beasties!
    All the best, friend,
