It's a new fan-dangled feature (appeared last week) that a dinosaur like me has never used before.

Sorry!

Sounds Intriguing!

I am assuming copyright means you can't use internet pics - don't want to get into trouble!

Doh!

Do you have any pics? I am so slow sometimes!

I don't have pics of these

I don't have pics of these two. Strangely most my images seem to be of foreign woodlice (not fit for iSpot?!).

Will see if I can snap separate examples next weekend. Might see another bee and spider will still be there, I suspect.
