Image: Portrait of a Net-casting Spider
This photo is of a full-grown male net-casting spider that I found at school. I had been looking for this type of spider for a while and was hoping to get a photo of its peculiar method of catching prey. Unfortunately, being full-grown and male, this spider didn't create a snare net, but I was able to capture its large predatorial eyes.
