House spider

By fificat100
Just a suggestion of shadow! For several evenings this beautiful chap apeared and scuttled across the sittingroom floor. Managed to grab a couple of shots after three night's failed attempts - this was the best one. Slight crop and squared to fill the frame.

No No, Lavina this is not a house spider it is an outside spider, well, in my house all spiders are outside spiders because that's where they get promptly removed to Wink - well captured and a good shadow lies discreetly beneath ... Carol

No way would I squeal and run, Ann! I love spiders, wouldn't even sweep away active cobwebs. And I love mice too - as long as they don't come in doing damage in the house, THEN I get angry !!!GrinGrin

Gosh! She's hairy! Good shadows...
She would't last a minute across my sitting room. My two mosters (Cats) would have had her in no time.... Grin
