Realizing the ferns in my garden were full of spores, I decided to dry a leaf on paper, collect the spores and see if I could propagate ferns from them.
Five of the eight legs of this spider were on the surface of a small pool of water. The other three were resting on a leaf floating on the surface. At first I thought this spider had been stranded on the leaf but I later realized it was probably waiting there for lunch to come along.
