Colourful World of Spiders

On Sunday, as well as a good selection of fungi, we spent time photographing two very small spiders - Tetragnatha extensa (brown on the left) and Diaea dorsata (the Green Crab Spider) hiding in the leaves of an oak tree. It was quite dull light by then and they are very small so a big challenge not totally met for sharpness but I do like the colours and, particularly, the way the eyes are shown. I confirmed ID of the brown one by its eye pattern but I liked the goggle eyes of the crab spider best.
