Marbled orb weaver

Holocnemus pluchei


This slender spider had caught quite a large prey and wrapped it up neatly.It was resting when it saw me.It quickly started hauling the prey and hid it behind the bush.Took him a while but it did succeed

Thanks Eric :) Nice to see you on PN.Also it was really sad about Mandy Howe.May her soul rest in peace.BTW,any ideas about which kind of insect is in the sac?The last picture shows the sac.Is it a leaf footed bug?
