The poor thing was nervous because he did not blend in - but in V3 on the purple flower he was free of fear Smile
Excellent images Carol !!

Being an arachnophobic you can imagine it pains me to say that this is actually quite a nice looking spider! So long as it doesn't come anywhere near me, and doesn't want to bite my toes! I don't care how big or small it is! V1 for me!
