That is certainly quite a big and fat spider.

Spiders are everywhere this autumn. There are hundreds in the garden and a few have ventured into the house. Putting a conker in the corner of every room is claimed to ward off spiders. I've been collecting conkers this morning and I'll let you know if it works!

wow, how neat! Great shot!

I don't think that's prey but rather an egg sack that it's building. Way cool shot though and this time you captured web in it! YAY!

HI Margaret. It does look similar to an egg sack, so I've added a close up from a slightly different angle :-)
