The Water Dragon

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #39

Water dragons are quite quick when they spot you. This bloke was enjoying the sun and I was sneaky.

It’s very small

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #38

OK all my spiderphobes, this fearsome looking but colourful spider is about 12mm in size. Sure it has prey in the web almost twice its size but take the time to look at a wonderful most unusual tiny, yes tiny spider I found on my place during a bit of a wander about. It is a Jewel Spider and is a female. The males are 5mm!! Maybe there was one on the web and I didn’t see it.

Was that enough warning?

Look in wonder
