Wasp Spiders at Snape

Today's sighting: Wasp Spiders at Snape, Suffolk

You can see the web and the start of a stabilimentum

Underside - with bound-up grasshopper

The watery reedbed habitat at Snape, looking across to Iken church

 Sadly we have not seen any of these extraordinary spiders in our wild garden this year. I am wondering if they were eaten either by the grass snake or the resident frog.
