[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Folks , finally a break in our rainy weather :-)

today I have this image of a sheet weaving spider , I am lacking a specific ID for this one but it is a quite common spider.

common but seldom seen, in dew soaked grass these small insects can be found by the dew upon their webs, they build their webs very close to the ground , and always stay under the web , the web will have a messy sheet and some random threads over-top , passing by insects will hit the 'scaffold' threads fall on the sheet and the spider will reach through trapping its prey.

thanks for having a look
