This one gave me a good jump. I almost walked into its web last night. It was in the shadows just next to a light I often visit looking for moths.

Funnel Spider! Tried to catch a photo when she came out, but she was too quick. Taken over one of the holes/ burrows from another land animal with a distinct web proving her to be a funnel spider.
Arachnids are a class (Arachnida) of joint-legged invertebrate animals in the subphylum Chelicerata. All arachnids have eight legs, although in some species the front pair may convert to a sensory function. The term is derived from the Greek word Ã¡Â¼â‚¬ÃÂÃŽÂ¬Ãâ€¡ÃŽÂ½ÃŽÂ· (arÃƒÂ¡chnÃ„â€œ), meaning "spider".
