Today I went for my usual walk down the canal hoping to see spiders,
Yesterday I took a late afternoon walk and saw more cobwebs than usual
and did not have the camera with me so today I went out specifically to see and shoot spiders,
there are always tiny spiders in and around my flat most are too small to get a decent photo of.
the ones I have are already on the blog. there is one that looks like it has four eyes. but in fact only has two. the first photo taken with my pocket camera.
the garden or banana spider, plenty of those here, Bananas that is,
Showing how small the spiders are, here I am holding the grass down to get a decent photo
the ones I did capture today are nothing like what I was expecting to see.the first two photos are the same spider back underside.
Tiny spiders leaving the nest with the parent not too far away.
A few yards up the path there was another with its back to the canal bank
so had to be happy with an under& side shot These spiders are not very big I should say about 2" in full length.
In the bottom corner of this photo you can see how minute these spiders are/
Makes one wonder how they make these huge cotton wool webs.
I never saw one bigger than this.
