30 Days Wild - day 14

It has been a grey and windy day today so we have spent our wild time watching different types of spiders hunting.

This garden spider was sitting still eating an ant for quite some time in it's web, beautifully coloured. Excuse the blurry photos but it was quite windy.

The web was right across the flower garden so we were able to get all around the spider for some really good views.

This crab spider was hunting on the oxeye daisies using camouflage, these spiders can change colour to blend in with the flower they are hunting on, usually a shade of white or yellow... Fascinating.
