A call to, ”Come and look who’s in the Table Tennis Shed!” had me grabbing my camera and tootling up the garden path. And when I saw this young lady, I was grinning from ear to ear.
As you can see, only a baby. So sparse have the Rain Spiders been at our spot this is a real treat and a most welcome visitor. I just hope she can manage to avoid the attentions of the Pompilid wasps.
For now she has taken up temporary residence behind an old plug socket just inside the door. The resident brown button spider who also lives behind the socket doesn’t seem to mind the company!
For these shots I gently nudged her out into the open using a bit of lavender. I wanted to get a shot or two of her on my hand but thought that was a bit presumptions having only just been introduced. As Ems said, ”Leave the poor thing alone!” So I clicked away for a few moments then let her be.
