I have asked Paul Iddon to curate a collection on “Spiders”!
How worrying is this “crackpot” spider?
I have a vase that looks like her, 😂!She's actually harmless to us. There are a several working their way around my Himalayan honeysuckle (Leycesteria formosa) at night - which is just as well, as during the day the flowers attract a few bees...

Perhaps spiders have a most effective mass to survival index ratio. They require minimal expenditure to propagate and survive past shortages in the type of food they are evolved to exploit.It’s hard to understand all the ecologies that make so many spiders and insects so successful!
