The Centre of My Universe

We had our first walk in Rowney Woods this afternoon for the first time in 2 or 3 weeks…the growth is amazing. We went, amongst other things, to find some dragonflies to photograph, but they had all cleared off…leaving a whole host of butterflies and moths dashing about…but my favourite photograph of the day had to be this Long-jawed Orb-weaver Spider (Tetragnatha extensa), also known as the Common Stretch Spider.

Spotted by Debbie the main picture shows the top side of the spider – below is the reverse side – not as effective a picture but interesting to see both sides of the creature. As always, I will caution you from taking my ID of this spider as gospel 😉
