    Photos Jumping Spider & A Weevil

    I found this weevil walking across the flagstone path in the garden, so I guided it onto a piece of broken brick off the soil to get a better background than slate slate grey. They are nasty insects for the plants, but have strange heads - best seen large in the third image. Almost reminds me of a whiskers long-nosed old dog!

    Another foray around the garden saw this little jumping spider (zebra spider) on the top of the wheelie bin - and after a couple of minutes darting around there on the surface and where the handle part is, she then jumped onto the nearby brickwork to pose for a moment or two...

    It's right Cliff. Just pushed its arse onto the edge of the bit of brick and it walked the rest of the way!

    Lens is excellent!
