All Wrapped Up

G'day All,
Another spider story. I spotted this Daddy Long Legs in the corner of the ceiling earlier today. There was a fly caught in his web nearby, but at first he didn't seem too interested and I left him alone. When I checked a little later he'd wrapped the fly in web and was either delivering the fatal bite or was commencing to devour his prey...


Here's a close up...

I wonder why they don't get those long legs tangled?
Regards,
Gouldiae

  2. Nice closeups!
    Many insects and spiders get about without full number of legs, maybe they do get in a tangle at times.
