An excellent walk in the Wyre Forest with Shropshire Invertebrate Group turned up two spectacular spiders! One was a tiny (less than 1cm) Jumping Spider, simply stunning once the macro lens got to work

Wyre Forest - Spectacular Spiders
It looked familiar, very similar to the cover picture (Evarcha arcuata) of Wildguides 'British Spiders' and turned out to be in the same genus - Evarcha falcata.
The other was a large choice rarity - female Green Huntsman (Macromatta virescens)
