Nursery Web Spider on Water

The Nursery Web spider is a powerful hunting spider that comes in a variety of colours. It lives at the edges of forests and old fields.

These spiders don’t spin a snare to catch food. Rather, they wait motionless in ambush and overpower unsuspecting insects as they pass by.

There are more than 600 species of spiders in Quebec.

I took this photo with my 60mm macro lens at 60 mm, ISO 100, f/10, 1/125 sec.
