What a wonderful close up of a species we often see in our own homes! If youโ€™re in Cumbria and have a few small friends in your home like this house spider consider sending them in as a record on our website! https://t.co/7zsluxMivu https://t.co/mY8IHqHka1

I came across the House Spider with one leg missing, that I photographed several days ago, so took some more close ups. @beardwarbler @BritishSpiders https://t.co/mGm6scYbdT
