Day 121

Netcasting spiders are hard to see unless they plonk themselves somewhere out of the ordinary, such as the screen on our front window.

They aren't venomous and sit patiently during the day doing nothing at all except pretending they aren't a spider , hence trying to change it's appearance by disguising the number of legs it has and not moving.

At night they spin a web between their front legs and 1 or 2 lines from their vantage point to other points crossing where they expect their prey to move/fly etc.  When the prey touches the line/s of web they cast the web over it like a fishing net and bring it back in, it'd be amazing to see it in action!
