The last of this series but this time without it's prey, he'd just eaten and was cleaning himself up before disappearing back inside the petals of this hydrangea.

This spider is also known as 'White Death' I wonder why?

Many thanks for the interest, the votes and comments on the previous ones, all greatly appreciated.

Have a great weekend.
