I can't believe I just checked my blog and found I hadn't written anything since last year!! Where has the time gone to?
I have never had so many ID requests as this year and so much time has been spent on updating the web pages with all the great and not so great photos sent in. It's great to hear from so many people and to be able to ID more spiders as I get to recognize more of the thousands of species. It's also great to see so many people with great attitudes to spiders, who don't just stomp on them on sight but take the time to find out about their visitors. These days I refuse to put photos online that have been taken of dead spiders and I am really reluctant to ID spiders people have killed! What's the point once they are dead?
