Sitting on our patio, enjoying the sun this morning, I spotted this little character beetling along the paving in a very determined way. I noticed every few inches the spider stopped briefly, so I dashed indoors and grabbed the camera which had my macro lens attached. When I got back outside the spider was still there so, crawling on hands and knees, I got close enough to take some photos. Astonishingly, the spider was remarkably cooperative and posed for a minute or so before scuttling away and down the steps.
