Haileybury, Web from our garden to our birch tree. Giant Web. , Canada, Ontario, Haileybury, Ontario, Canada August 18, 2017 Size: Bigger than a quarter.
The Web is 3 feet long. 1 and a half feet wide. Not symmetrical at all. Does not rebuild it every night. Sometimes waits 3 nights or till its Web is completely destroyed. It hangs in the middle of web, facing downward. But also sits off to the side under a branch of the tree and watches and waits.
The most amazing thing about it, the spider has two cone shaped bumps on its back. It's black with stripped legs. And quite large. Never seen one of its kind before.
