orb weaver

A spider has set up housekeeping over the ceonothus (sp?) bush in our front yard. It constructed a round,”orb” web, and around it a much more improvisatory, and complex web around it, with very strong looking strands. In the middle is a little pile of “stuff,” sort of a little collected pile of junk. The spider hides in this little pile of stuff, and comes out occasionally to catch its prey, and create more strands. This is the Labyrinthine Weaver Spider, my neighbor.
