Thank you fo all your very kind comments and votes following yesterdays upload. Thanks to Dave for identifying the cluster as being European Garden Spiders, and Chinga for presenting me with her User Award. Keeping with yesterdays theme of Beasties 'n' Bugs I though I might upload this rather romantic image which I capture a little while ago.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me its another morning at the hospital to see yet another Consultant...

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

"Birds do it, bees do it,
Even educated fleas do it,
Let's do it. let's fall in love".

The only problem is that it's hover flies here instead of bees: fine shot of the 'action', Nathan.
