Hanging Around

By jasonrwl
Thanks for C&C's on yesterday's bee.

Not at all sure about spider id but my best guess is that this is the Rabbit Hutch Spider (Steatoda bipunctata) .... unless anybody knows different?

Thanks for looking
Jason

'Rabbit hutch' spider. I shall definitely be more wary when cleaning out the rabbit in future. Never heard of this one, Jason, a sharp and detailed capture.

Don't think you need worry too much Dave it's less than 1cm long GrinGrinGrin. Apaarently there is barely a rabbit hutch in the country without one.

Another great and detailed macro image, I like the way you have superimposed the body over the white leaf variagation making best use of the background leaf being close in.
