A Trinity Close Garden Spider
Viewed from the underside
The Garden Spider is the UK's commonest 'orb weaver
spider'. Their webs (spirals with radial threads) are
built out of sticky silk. They sit in the middle of the
web, waiting to feel the vibrations of a struggling insect
caught in the web, at which point they rush out and wrap
it tightly in silk. Once immobilised they will kill their
victim with a venomous bite.
