Zebra spider

Monday, May 24th 2010

The hot weather bought out many invertebrates today. This female Zebra Spider (Salticus scenicus) was found on the ceiling in the bird ringing room along with a male and a tiny spiderling. These are hunting spiders with exceptionally good eyesight, stalking their prey and finally leaping on them!

Michaela, whose first day it was on weekend duty, photographed this Large Red Damselfly on the border of the woodland close to the wetland hide.

The net rides were full of butterflies, the Speckled Wood were basking in the glades.
