A Barn Spider

Buffy and I were walking around the yard early one morning,

and there hung a barn spider feeding on a katydid that had gotten tangled in the web last night.

I omitted the picture of the area where the spider was eating.

Barn spiders are nocturnal and rebuild their web nightly. They hide during the day, and sit in the center of their web at night when hunting.
