    Thanks for sharing Rona, this should be made a sticky so when summers over and its all grey and gloom and bare twigs it will give us something to cheer us up and keep us going to spring again.

    Absolutely stunning pictures as always @rona. I'm loving smaller creatures theme - I've a real interest in the smaller beings. Do you have any idea what the brown spider is? I saw some on my walk today & not come across those before. I love the crab spider, we usually get a few of those in the ivy.

    Thanks. The whole place has come alive since the Bramble flowers opened :)
    I believe it's a Grass spider but could be a Nursery web spider

    Some great photos again Rona, and it also took me back a bit when we used to take my daughter on nature hunts when she was small she always called them mini beasts.

    Looks like yours was resting. I'm sure mine was displaying for a mate, it had a very odd posture with it's bum in the air :D
    Actually, it looks as if it's have a pee :D
