Net casting Spider with net

Richmond NSW, Australia

This is the same specimen as the other net-casting spider, but this shot illustrates the specialised web that the animals drop
over passing insects. I have only once seen a net-casting spider with a net during the day, which leads me to suspect the
nets are assembled each night.
