During a walk around the garden my daughter managed to spot this green spider against a green leaf, to be honest I don't have bad eysight however, not in a million years would I have spotted it. The spider was hiding on the surface of the leaf. Although I am not an entomologist, it looks like it might be Araneus talipedatus (slender green orb-weaver spider). The spider was not harmed in taking the photo. The photo was taken handheld with the Sony A7R 4, Sigma 150mm macro and Raynox DCR 250. 1/400 sec, f/5.6, ISO 1600, multiple images were stacked in Helicon Focus (to get a better depth of field), put through Topaz DeNoise AI and finished off in Lightroom CC.
