Happy Spider

May be as the rain had stopped, at least for a few minutes!



Happy and Hairy.




Hopefully Harold knows if it is a mouse or a flat belly?



He was quite black in real life. The green tinge was a result of a hazel leaf in front of the flash.

Re: Happy Spider

Cracking macro shots. Always amazing to see such detail in these amazing little creatures that so many can't stand to be near. (I don't want to touch one but I always capture any marauding ones in containers and set them free outside)

His legs are far too long for a Mouse Spider.

I think he is an Amaurobius. Unfortunately, he is holding his palps vertically. If they were turned outwards, a huge white patch on each would confirm A. ferox.

Thanks Harold. Having looked at some other pictures of the same, I think you are right.
