There are more than 600 named species of spider in the UK although around half of them are very small being no more than 3mm long. Spiders belong to the order Araneae.

Usually quite difficult to photograph as many of them will take fright and hide as soon as they detect your presence.

I like to be able to show at least a couple of the spiders eyes in my photographs if possible. Most spiders have more than two eyes and can have up to eight eyes.
