Legs long enough to be a super model though perhaps just a tad on the hairy side for that! Grin Excellent macro work, Carol. V1 especially appeals, though a great set.

Excellent set of photos Carol - for some reason I like V3 best - maybe the macro of this multi eyed monster Smile I did not know you had these ones in Brittain as well - thought they were endemic to Africa Smile

This set must be amongst some of your best work Carol. I usually prefer to see the whole critter rather than really close-up so the vote goes to No. 2.

I look forward to the day when fashion no longer dictates that we have to shave our legs. Come to think of it, that day has come for me - I'm old and nobody cares any more.
