And down came a Spider.

Practising with a new macro lens in the Garden this afternoon I took pictures of one of my favourite spiders the “Garden Spider.”

Garden spiders are the most common orb web spider found in the UK.They get their name as they are often found in our gardens. They sit in the middle of the web waiting to feel the vibrations of a struggling insect that gets caught in threads of their webs. Any prey caught is quickly and tightly wrapped in silk to stop them from moving – finishing the job with a venomous bite! (they are completely harmless to humans).
