Smaller than a Daddy Long Legs and more brightly coloured - abdomen is orange with a broken black stripe along the back and each side. They seem to like hogweed, but this one was visiting a dock. Taken during the daily dog walk around the usual field. There's a lot to be seen in the undergrowth

K3 + Sigma 105mm macro.

Thoughts and comments etc. welcome as usual.

.....I remember reading, somewhere, not that long ago, "The more I look, the more there is to see."

Lovely picture, very well-seen, Steve!

Thanks folks.

Natural light. Low, bright sun from the right direction. Lucky to find one on a dock, shots of the same on the white flower heads of hogweed etc. were OK for identification but fairly boring as photographs.

I see it has given you the usual compositional problem by sticking one leg way out! The rosy reds of the dock, as you say, make a far more interesting picture.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Yes, but you have to feel some sympathy for the insect. Controlling 6 legs must be really difficult, controlling 2 is enough for me.
