Funnel Web Spider

I am not a big fan of spiders but I do find them interesting. I prefer to observe them outside and from a distance.

This guy, I learned from a friend who is a teacher that this is a Funnel Web spider. Their webs look more like blankets than your typical spider web.

These two pictures were taken May 8th.

 He/she is at the entrance of their web which looks like a "funnel" hence where they get their name.

This picture and the following were taken on May 10th.

The spider web has captured food!

The spider comes out of the hole to retrieve breakfast (it's morning 😉 )

Carrying "breakfast" inside.

Last glimpse before he gets out of sight.

Have a good one!
