I'm sometimes asked how I spot so many insects, so here's my attempt to explain. Tuning into the insect world involves a complex combination of hearing and seeing.

Simon Barnes is so much better at explaining all this in his book Rewild Yourself which I am currently listening to in the studio via Libby.
PS. I found a wonderful blogpost about the Crab Spider while checking my photo identification - click on the spider to read more.
