Thought I’d post this one just because …
I didn’t get close enough to find out exactly which type of spider it was – and, besides, it looked far too relaxed among the Cow Parsley to disturb.

What beautiful bizarre flowers! Of course, they do belong in your photos…after all, they have antennae!
You probably don’t have cow parsley where you are. Each flower is just one of a head of many, grouped together – each floret is maybe a tenth of an inch wide at most. Most people don’t tend to look that closely, because it’s a wild plant / weed. But you’re right – they are unusual as far as flowers go 🙂
I suppose they have to extend their anthers like that because they are fighting against a crowd to get pollinated.
I’d never thought about it before.
Interesting! You’re right, it’s hard to judge scale – I would have guessed that the florets were much bigger. (And you’re also right – I think – that cow parsley doesn’t grow around here; at least, I’ve never noticed it.) Some weeds are beautiful.
Oh don’t worry! You know what cow parsley looks like! So in reality, he’s only about quarter of an inch long 🙂
I know that spiders do wonderful things for our environment (eat pesky insects), but brrr, they scare the poo outta me!
Lovely pic, though.
He’s not scary, he’s really very little 🙂
I love spiders and think they are the most fascinating of creatures. I’m hoping you’ll spot more of them to share with us.
I’ve got quite a few spider pics – they are not all pretty, but I’ll be sharing them as we go along 🙂
@Alice, a very brilliant technique Macro … there are no other words – very stunning. My compliment 😀 Thanks for visiting my blog my friend, warm regards
