Late spring

Over the last couple of weeks the wood has sprung into life. Trees, grasses and wildflowers all energetically aimimg for the sky! Lots of small insects are moving about in the grass with one or two brown butterflies and a blue one which flittered out of site before I could take a photo. Not many bees--as yet.
This spider's web  caught my attention as it sparkled in the sunshine. I'll put the photo on ispot to get an identification from the web--but the spider was rather shy!

I almost walked past this tiny vetch. It was only when I knelt down  to take this photo that I realised it was spread  over quite a large area along the edge of one of the rides.
