Latin name: Agelenopsis sp.
This past Saturday morning I put an ant in a Funnel Spider's web and photographed the ensuing subduing. The results were pretty graphic and kind of sobering. Number 3, shown here, I found especially troubling. One steps on ants, one poisons ants, one watches ants teeming about the garden. One does not always see an ant one has put in a web gaping as he's fatally bitten by a spider.
