Black Lace Weaver

Amaurobius ferox. 5 image focus stack.


Isn't she lovely? (as Stevie Wonder might have said). No, it's not a Tarantula, it's a Black Lace Weaver, one of our common garden spiders. This female was about 15mm long. That's Black Lace-Weaver, named after the rather tatty "web" (being generous there) these spiders construct, rather than Black-Lace Weaver, as in push pineapple, shake the tree. Just in case you were wondering.
