I often forget I can record video on my camera, but this raft spider needed to be seen in motion, a still photo just wouldn't have captured the moment.
I shot this on the Coombe Heath pond and thought Michael and Rob would like to see it.
I've used a link as I don't know if I can post video files on this forum.
Amazing footage Adrian :-)

Hi Adrian - that is pretty cool - the egg sac is almost as big as the spider. There are loads of amazing spiders out on the reserve at the moment! Thanks for the link - The whole website has limmited space so I think videos on the forum do use up a lot of memory.

You can embed YouTube clips on forum posts without any impact on RSPB servers. Not sure about Flickr vids.
