The Wolf Spider and its Nest: the real websites

....

I have been having problems uploading the pictures from the bird survey at BR Hills...but I saw so much else that was also fascinating...so here's my photo essay on the nest of the Wolf Spider.

The Wolf Spider makes a large web with a deep tunnel in it, where it rests, waiting for someone to "walk into its parlour" as the poem has it. Here's what the nest looks like:

And heres' a close-up. The nests were looking extra wonderful with the raindrops glittering on the strands of silk. There were many of them around.

If you look carefully, you can see the spider sitting inside the tunnel.

Now, here's the spider, outside:

And at the entrance to the tunnel:

And here's amoghavarsha's Nikon D80 with the macro lens, with the image of the nest ( I love this "image-of-image" stuff!) Amogh was also taking snaps, but these snaps are by me.....

Well...that's the Wolf Spider and its Tunnel of Death (or Dinner, according to one's point of view!)

Arachnophile sunson....this post's for you! And if I think of "Arachnis" or "silk threads", then this post is for udhay, too!
