Not my typical Spider shot, but it has been hanging around (no pun intended) for a while, so I thought it may as well get posted on here.
I like King Alfred’s Tower as it is a folly and serves no purpose. Genius! The tower was intended to commemorate the end of the Seven Years War against France and the accession of King George III, and supposedly stands near the location of ‘Egbert’s stone’ where it is believed that Alfred the Great, King of Wessex, rallied the Saxons in May 878 before the important Battle of Ethandun (now Edington, south-east of Trowbridge) where the Danish army was defeated.
A stare from a Lioness is scary, even if you are in a car.
One of the frogs that keeps Dad’s pond interesting. The fish are kinda bland, but some amphibian action is always welcome.
