Itsy, bitsy spiders...

Found both of these at Wayford Woods nr Chard at the weekend while walking Jake (that's my boy, not a dog). Both incredibly small just a few mm long and difficult to photograph in appalling light but interesting little things. Amazing what they look like when seen closely:

Cyclosa conica, male - with distinctive conical
shaped abdomen: R. Harris

Cyclosa conica, male - colour variation: R. Harris

Ozyptila praticola - a mini crab spider: R. Harris

...and then there was this bruiser on the patio doors:

Araneus diadematus: R. Harris
