It’s damp and misty weather. Yesterday I managed to catch a Wolf Spider, I have been trying to find them for weeks and get a photograph. Yesterday I managed to scoop one up and get it back to the van. I popped it on a rock surrounded by water but it kept leaping in for a swim. I gave up before she drowned herself.
Here she is dry and then I rescued her from the plate full of water and whilst she was cleaning herself off downloaded this image. I noticed………………
She is carrying a dozen or more baby spiders or as this bugger calls them spiderlets. I felt sorry for the poor wet things so popped her back with the rest of the pack. Wet spiders don’t make for very good pictures. I’ll try and think of another way of containing one without causing too much grief. I try for weeks to get a picture of a Wolf Spider then get lots at once. Such is life.
Those that saw yesterdays post will have seen the following images as thumbnails in the screen grab of Bridge.
I can’t identify this fly. It’s not very big as it’s sitting on a grass stalk.
A Yellow Dung Fly peeping at you.
That’s all for today.
