Tetragnatha extensa, sometimes known as the Long Jawed Orb Spider is found on low-growing vegetation, usually in damp areas. It feeds on insects, including mosquitos, midges and moths, which it catches in its loosely-constructed web. When alarmed, it will sit along a plant stem, a blade of grass or the central vein of a leaf, with its four front legs pointing forwards, and its four back legs pointing backwards for camouflage. T. extensa is able to walk on the surface of water, where it can move faster than on land.

Regards to all......Ade

Superbly detailed capture Ade. Hardly seems enough room in such a delicate creature to sustain life. Mother nature is wonderful.GrinGrin

Brilliant shot, Ade, superb detail, but i think it works and looks better in landscape format, still a brilliant image and the colours are awesome. (what about that ,Ade, me giving advice to the god of close ups) Wink LOL.
Nice one.

It's one thing to find these obscure and strange creatures for us Ade but it's another thing entirely to capture them in the highest standard that you do! Detail is outstanding and presentation first class. Lou
