Raft Spiders

Raft Spiders

Observation - Raft Spiders. Description: Taken with a telephoto as I couldn't get close enough with the macro (short of wading into a stinking morass!). As soon as the first glut of insects appears, so do Raft Spiders. An adult female is capable of taking down a hawker dragonfly.
