No idea what this is. It was small, perhaps 10mm or so excluding antennae

One of my first Macro shots.   This is a molting from a Steatoda grossa, aka - cupboard spider or false black widow. People often think they are cannibals since they see 'dead spiders' in their webs. While most spiders are cannibals, it is usually the molting shed as the spider grows bigger (now let that thought sink in)!

Comments welcome!

Good shot but with that big 150mm macro try to get closer. I know it is scary with spiders! Hope to see more.
