a very interesting pair. no2 looked actually like a quite clumsy uncontrolled balance act, till I saw that his legs were sorta locked around the twig. Like a dead one, but sideways.
It certainly needs an expert eye to spot one and take such an excellent shot of a 'muddy shield bug with spider legs'

Hi Carol, this is really a cracking set of image. Great presentation too.

Very well captured Carol. Cold enough here this morning that his limbs wouldn't unfreeze Sad.
Haven't been out to inspect the wind damage yet, but undoubtedly there will be some as ferocious winds yesterday.

An amazing story and an amazing image. All these little beasties are using your pool as a breeding ground, and producing something 'new' to science on a daily basis ! Smile
