For some reason, funnel web spiders are everywhere this year, spinning their funnels in window corners, siding slats and of course anywhere they can find in the woods.  The one pictured below was a foot high and maybe twice as wide. The weaver was no doubt safely ensconced at the bottom of the funnel’s throat. Another common web, made by bowl and doily spiders can be seen in every pine tree and are more prominent when beaded with morning dew.

Fantastic funnel web.
