A view of the apse in the early evening of this eight-hundred-year-old church in the centre of Arezzo. The apse backs onto the Piazza Grande, site of the twice-yearly Giostra (jousting) festival. This shot was taken during the recent Arezzo Back in Time festival, an extravaganza of Roman, Medieval and Renaissance events.

This male White Death Crab Spider (far smaller than the female – check the image of two days ago) is a master of camouflage. Look how close the colour of the legs and cephalothorax are to the lavender stalks. He was considerably smaller too than the bees buzzing around the lavender, but he had every intention of lunching on one.
