This little guy was sitting on his web, between two shoots fo heather, waiting for some prey. I caught sight of it on a test image I had done with my new phone camera while out with the dogs, so popped back to the house and got my DSLR and macro lens. The position was about head height and my tripod would not allow me to get the right angle for the shot. So I had to opt for handheld. I took a few shots and this was the only one that came out reasonably sharp.
