I think this post epitomises the reason I became so fascinated by the world through a macro lens.
This little chap is apparently “very common” according to my little book of Nature – but, as usual, I have never noticed one before today. Neither, as it happened, had anyone I showed the picture to. Not unexpectedly, it is commonly known as a Zebra Spider, and there he was, along with several little mates, wandering around an old Buddleia tree outside the garden.
