Many thanks to Walter and Ron for their generous UAs for the fat spider.

Haven't seen any butterflies for 10 days, the birds don't look much in miserable weather either and can't bore you with another blue tit. Yesterday it was grey, rainy and a nice day for November Smile .
But One little argus ventured out and tried the nectar in Mr Nadaud's garden. So here is my lunchtime shot.

Superb shot Annette. A lovely composition although for perfection I feel the flower stalk is just a tad too long. Still a cracking shot however.
