Tuesday 17th February 2009

One doesn't see many spiders around the house at this time of year but this one popped into the kitchen today.

It is a female Amaurobius similis which lives in holes in walls, fences and window frames within which it makes a tubular retreat with bluish silk threads around the entrance.

    That yellow on it's back causes me to feel cautious.
