Funnel web grass spider emerging from hole in ground, California
Though it looks huge in this image, this spider's body is less than a 1/2" long (not counting the legs). I came across his very impressive funnel-shaped web while out hiking, so I waited for the architect to emerge. I didn't have to wait long before capturing this image. The spider is called a funnel-web grass spider. I used a specialized telephoto macro lens to bring out the extreme detail in the subject.
