Knock, Knock, Who's There? - Thomas Morgan

I like this photo because this net casting spider (Family Deinopidae) looks as if she is going to attack the camera. Two of her eight eyes are extremely large and she has excellent night vision. Net-casters spin a stamp sized web and, when an insect approaches, they stretch the web and throw it over the prey.
