Cobweb Spider< PreviousNext >
This is one of the family of cobweb spiders that are responsible for those big hairy monsters that crawl around your house. This one, though, was outside in amongst the grass perched atop a fine silk trampoline he had made for himself awaiting his prey. It was a very sensitive spider and knew I was there, and I was rather worried it might jump at me thinking I was prey. However, it wriggled a bit and I got a few shots. It is the first ever spider I have seen with a quiff.
