Title: cooool spider & web
Post by: wishforabird on June 30, 2011, 10:28:09 am
ok, this spider (very very small BTW, like an inch!) built a web on the slide.. it has a cool "bowl" shape to it, and I could not get a good pic of the abdomen so I could ID it.. it had linear stripes of yellow on an elongated abdomen.. anybody know?  :think:
it had a fly in its web, and it bit it on the leg once, then twice when the first bite didn't seem to have an effect. the fly fought and wriggled and freed itself!! could not help but cheer for this tenacious fly!!
