    A charming couple don't you think?

    And one after she'd managed to get rid of him


    For those of you who know London, you may be surprised to hear that this was in the middle of Regent's Park. I'd never seen a Wasp Spider anywhere before and certainly never expected to see one there but I spotted at least ten in about five square meters. I was amazed and went back again very early the next day. The webs are quite close to the ground so I ended up lying on a newspaper on a patch of Thistles trying to get as level as I could.

    Good detail. Eating your partner could work out cheaper than divorce.

    Thank you Stephan. I feared for the Male when he started climbing all over her but she didn't seem at all bothered. Shame, would have made a great series.
  4. Wow, nice detail and color.
