Today we have two overachieving arachnids.
First, from the Torygraph’s picture gallery for today:
The incredible spider’s web which appeared in front of Russell Harding s garage door. A pensioner could not believe his eyes when he stepped outside his front door and almost walked into this spider’s web – which spanned six foot. Russell Harding, 74, was shocked when he spotted the huge web as he went to carry out some early morning work in his garage. The web, which spread the gap between his car’s wing mirror and his shed and had an inch and a half spider sat in the middle.
From Matthew: The spider is a European Garden Spider, and is obviously substantially closer to the camera than the garage door (if not, the spider would be truly immense…) In fact, we could probably work out how far away the spider and the garage food are…
