From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cyclosa conica is a small spider with no common name. It is an orb weaver, and it is easily recognized by
the way it strings together the dead bodies of insects and other debris and hangs it near the center of its web. It hides on this string of debris, and its natural coloration makes it extremely difficult to see until it moves. One of its defenses against predators is to blend in with this debris and to feign death when disturbed. These spiders are small. The females range from 5.3 mm. to 7.5 mm., and the males range from 3.6 mm. to 4 mm.

Welcome on TN

very nice well focussed picture, pleasing background. Some minor comments:
- No note!
- High contrast, i'd like to see a bit more detail on the face whcih is dark now.
- a bit central placement. a vertical layout with the spider at the top half may have given a bit more pwerful composition

still in all nice shot,

Hello Rafaila,

Beautiful capture of this interesting spider.
I like the colors and details.
The drawing on the back of it remembers a dog face.
Great work!
