    Wow, definitely worth the lost sleep! Is that a wolf spider? We have one who builds a web on one side of our front door that I keep meaning to try to catch...

    Excellent captures. Wow you've been up early.
  10. Thanks all.

    The early starts are a must at the moment cos it rains most of the daylight hours! ;0) Plus I can then get some photography in before I go to work.
