    Nice set Alf. I like #1, #2, #5, #6 and #7 best. Well, apart from the extra one. I like that best of all. (Probably the most difficult shot I imagine.)

    Thanks Nick
    Out of that lot the sawfly was probably the most difficult as it was trying to hide
    Thanks Icy
    I have seen more crab spiders this year than ever before.
