There have been a surfeit of critters to be rescued from the pool just recently, this selection were all found on the same day, they must have been having a water party Smile

Four rather stunning photographs depicting these rather sodden and somewhat sombre looking creatures, you certainly did a great shop in the recovery process. "However can you please enlighten me, as to how you administered CPR?"

Glad your pool is still going strong Carol. Even critters need somewhere to cool off. Smile

As it is so damn hot in Greece! It was very good of you to build the pool for these poor things to cool off, and to top it all you provide a lifeguard.

Four excellent detailed macro captures Carol, the spider for me.
