Grass spider

7292.        This spider as been slowly making a growing web in my kitchen window, for over a month. I finally spotted this beauty when I got up at 5am. I’ve heard it catching flies as I wash the dishes, but this is the first time catching a glimpse of it. It’s definitely keeping the fly population down including those nasty fruit flies that appear every year at this time. Hopefully it stays in its web. Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canada
