Had a nice surprise earlier this week when this image was chosen to be put into a calendar by Chris Packham and his associates in the Self Isolating Bird Club, with proceeds from sales going toward conservation projects. It was worth getting a muddy boot, foot and ankle for in the end :)

It is a female Wasp Spider and one of the very largest I have seen. Clearly Damselflies, like the one wrapped here, are good protein :)
