Boris the spiderman

      The little spider at the top, Boris as he is known, is high up on the inside of one of the kitchen windows. One of the reasons he is still there, and not evicted by the boss, is because he'd doing a great job of fly and wasp extermination
       When we first spotted him he was tiny, just a couple of millimetres across but now he's blossoming in his role and is over 6mm. If he gets much bigger he's threatened with eviction by 'you know who' but at the moment he is safe and he just quietly gets on with his prime directive in a purposeful and very dedicated manner.
       Well done Boris.
       Meanwhile down below is what he will grow into, I hope. You can tell he's a country spider too because he's wearing rather dapper brown tweeds.
       Very smart.
