I was at York River State Park strolling along the river and snapped this photo of a Grass Spider, also known as a Funnel Weaver.
If you look closely, you can see the spider’s legs at the back of the funnel. These relatively large spiders can move very fast. There is some debate over whether their venom is toxic to humans.
This web is not sticky. Funnel weavers hie in the back of these funnel webs and rely on their speed to catch prey that gets caught between the web walls.
