Fen Raft Spiders

Carlton Marshes is one of the few places in the country which supports breeding colonies of Fen Raft Spiders. Despite being about 7 cm in diameter, these semi-aquatic spiders are extremely difficult to spot amongst the vegetation and I have searched for them without success every time I have visited recently. However, today I 'got my eye in' and managed to find four of them. The two pictured here are females with their egg sacks which they keep cool by submerging them in the water.

Note: Two new photos have been added towards the end of the thread.

E-M1 II and 300mm F4.
