A brown colored spider. It is playing dead. Few seconds before I took this picture, it was active and trying to grab a small insect that was in the web.The insect was lucky and wriggled out some how. When I approached it just held its legs folded stayed steady.


Spotted in reserve forest area in northern India.


It is about a CM in size. It was in the center of the web. It was just hiding in the corner and rushed to the spot where the insect got stuck.
