Fantastic photos indeed, and an impressively spotless kitchen floor!

alas the floor isn't that clean - I had to rescue the spider from the dogs which were overexcited at me arriving home and bouncing up and down over the top of it - I put it on a sheet of A4 and it was surprisingly photogenic - I didn't know my little autofocus had it in it (mind you, it helps that I've finally worked out where the macro button is).
