Wow, what a shot. Trap door spider, I suppose. Evil eyed creature you captured there. Super shot. Tom

Thank you Tom. I believe it is a type of grass spider; their web also has a funnel shaped entrance. www.BugGuide.net has some good images of various types.

Thanks Chris, it was with Gerard's prompting (on the macro forum) that helped me achieve a crop that enhanced more of the spiral form in the composition.

Thank you John, happened across it as I was weeding the garden that morning. Took a few attempts as I kept spooking it setting up the tripod & flash
