A few weeks ago I wrote about a twilight visitor , a beautiful brown spider that had taken up residence on one of our palms. I also said that when I returned to look for it the next day it had disappeared, but really it hadn’t, it had just gone into hiding.
After watching this handsome araña we’ve come to understand that it makes its home under the leaf of the palm, emerging to build a beautiful, new web only when it gets hungry. Most days it sleeps and allows me to poke a prod at it and get almost nose to nose so to speak. In the nighttime it will wake from its slumber to capture the nocturnal insects that it feeds on…in the campo.http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/nighttime/comment-page-5/#comment-441601
