beauty and the beast

By CarolG  
I was so sad to see that one of my little irridescent green weevils had been taken unawares and robbed of its life by this spider Sad

The financial situation in Greece is hitting hard at present, and not only the Greeks but me, too, and I am finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Unfortunately, my telephone line was cut yesterday, due to the unability to pay the bill, which means that the internet connection will go down the same road within the next day or so. I will upload for as long as I am able to do so, but when I disappear, you will know why.

You need to have words with that spider. Tell it to leave you some subjects to photograph.
Our thoughts are with you in this crisis, Carol, and we will certainly miss your uploads if you're unable to get onto EPZ.
