Whole New Meaning To Packed Lunch by 

Garden Orb Spider, moving what looks like what was once a grasshopper after carefully wrapping it in silk.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Wow!! Outstanding piece of work!!

  • Thanks, John. I went back to the spot this morning and she was wrapping another catch. I’m assuming it’s the same spider a week on, as the web is in the same spot still. There are 3 more quite close by too.

    Congratulations on being featured on this weeks BNofE page, well done!
    (I couldn’t bare to look at this one too closely)

  • Thanks very much. You’re safe, I think it would be satisfied with what it had here for a day or two:). I was amazed at the size of the prey. Those webs are very strong considering just how delicate they look
