Comments & ID Thoughts

Amaurobius ferox, black lace weaver, male. This one was in the same habitat as the one in my other photo. They live in holes and crevices in the stone house foundation in damp areas. They make flat vertical and horizontal webs against the walls, floor and window sills with a twirled ending of the web inserted into their hiding place, it’s like a fishing line they come out when the line is tugged. They aren’t usually in the posture my photos show, they walk with their feet muchcloser together.

Great photo of your spider — very black and very blunt faced. Somebody needs to apply facial recognition technology to spiders. But then you wouldn’t have a hobby anymore !!!

Is she laying on ice crystals or is that her web ?
