Photo Share: Wet cone-shaped spider web in garden

Grass Spider webs serve as both a platform on which the spider captures prey and as a retreat in which the spiders can remain hidden. The grass spider web is not sticky but relies upon a network of threads above the sheet to funnel them down a hole where they are captured by the rapidly running grass spider.

I bet she dislikes this wet morning as much as I do.

If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
