Wasp Spiders

It's 9.15am.  I have two days before I leave Eagleton.  I've brought in the storm shutters from the garage because there is not much wind this morning for the first time for a week.  I was getting concerned because they are too big and heavy to carry in a strong wind.  I have a HUGE list of things to do this morning in town including taking all Gaz's pictures to An Llantair for the annual  Grinneas nan Eilean Art Exhibition.  Then I have a friend coming for lunch at noon.  So why am I thinking about Wasp Spiders and standing in front of a laptop?  Don't ask 'cos I don't know the answer.  It defies common sense.

But I woke up with a desire to share wasp spider pictures.  The first two were taken at Chudleigh Knighton Heath near Exeter in 2007 and the last one in the Lot-et-Garonne this year.

  1. Aaah that reminds me of you reading about the great fire of Chudleigh. Ian and I can't say 'Chudleigh' without thinking of that!

    Gaz's pictures???

  2. Gaz has submitted some of his photos: they are stunners including a couple of the Standing Stones which are, I think, on his blog.

  3. I think the name Chudleigh is a wonderful one. I think I could well imagine that as a surname.

  4. Thanks GB. For some reason when you said pictures I didn't think of photographs. Makes perfect sense now.

  6. I can't look at these spiders!
    I call to mind Gaz's photos of the standing stones instead...

  7. Sometimes, GB, I would prefer if you kept your urges to yourself. I can't even look closely enough to appreciate the photography!
