Amethyst Brook Conservation Area, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
August 21, 2019
I walked into my closet to get dressed and noticed that a speck on the wall was moving and had legs. My eyes are getting bad enough that I thought at first that it was a very small spider. Fortunately my camera can magnify things very nicely. Second time we've seen one of these in our bedroom, and third time in the house, all three up on the second floor.
