Theridiosomatidae spider with web
Photographer: Sarah Rose
Location: La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica
I was searching around a fallen log and found this perfect Theridiosomatidae spider web with the spider carefully pulling the center of the web down making it cone shaped. The spider will "release" the web when it detects prey, creating a slingshot effect.
