Spider Id help - false widow

Hello,

I'm sure this is the hot question at the moment but if anyone is able to help identify this spider it'd be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Dave

    Hi Dave,

     

    This is a garden spider (Araneus diadematus), very common around taller flowering plants, bushes, exterior window frames...but sometimes find their way indoors too. Look a bit guesome, but total scaredy cats that play dead, or run, when threatened.

     

    Regards, Mark.
