A few invertebrates are venturing out in the sunshine

The sun is breaking through on this Easter Sunday and as a result a few invertebrates are on the move

PeacockHere is a peacock butterfly which has overwintered – looks pretty fresh!

Pisura mirabilisThis is the spider Pisura mirabilis – if you look carefully (perhaps enlarge the picture by double clicking on it) you will see it has 6 eyes!
