However Wednesday evening in the garden my husband and daughter saw and caught this micro moth....
Today this little fellow was greeting me at the front door. It was an obviously different species of spider because of its shape. In fact I had to take a closer look as at first glance it thought it only had 6 legs. I posted it to the Facebook ID group and someone has suggested a running crab spider. Quite striking markings though.
On that note, I would like to take the opportunity to share the plight of thousands and thousands of birds that are slaughtered illegally and so cruelly in certain parts of Europe.
Birdlife International runs several campaigns to protect many endangered birds throughout our world. But this one is so, so heart breaking. They have a made a new video to highlight what goes on - it is awful and very graphic. Their campaign to end this heartless act is on their website and being shared through social media. Please take time to read it and if you are heartbroken, like me, watching or reading it then let's do something about it before it's too late. Take action.
Many of the birds killed are migratory - they may never reach their destination which could be your country. If you like reading my blogs, are starting to learn more about nature and gain respect and enjoy it, please sign and share the petition and/or donate. Many, many more signatures are needed. Thank you for your time. Back soon.
