Pretty effective camouflage, don't you think?

I didn't see it until it moved!

Nice!

To the others that can't see, if you suffer from arachnophobia, then don't look!

Good spot, Ross. There is a spider sitting in the bottom half of the shot. I was focussed on the ladybird and only saw the spider when it moved. It really does make you realise how effective natural camouflage can be.

That's the type of "Judge Bait" image you get in camera club competitions...

You have less than a minute to make comments and assessment, and if you miss a key element, you hear the mutterings of "fancy not knowing it's a Pholcus phalangioides"

I showed the wife, who is not scared of spiders, and she couldn't see it.

Did you get a video of it moving

Sorry, Graham, it wasn't meant to be provocative. I was just amazed at how well he was hidden.

All is revealed here:
