Araneus quadratus with prey

Post by Bruce Williams »

Hi folks,

In my last posting I mentioned the fact that A.quadratus also builds a papery, funnel shaped hide-away. She sits there with her foot holding a single thread attached to her beautifully crafted orb-web waiting for lunch to arrive. Here's a pic of her (a female) at home with a recently delivered take-away:
