The store website has just a few products for sale to UK customers only at the moment. It also features several photography related articles & reviews. Over the coming months I shall be adding an expanded range of prints & products for sale whilst also authoring further photography related articles. We will also expand the store to make suitable items available for purchase internationally. I shall keep you posted as things develop. Please feel free to take a look, anytime you need to brighten up your day or just because 🙂

Spider Prey

Perhaps not for those of a sensitive disposition, here’s a pair of photos showing a quite striking female Four-spotted Orb Weaver (Araneus quadratus).

In both pictures our female spider is busy wrapping her fly dinner in a silken cocoon.

There’s quite a colony of these spiders living in the riverside meadows.
