It's a wrap!

Feast your eyes on this elaborate and distinctive web with its domed sheet and topped by a tubular "wrap" or retreat. Each retreat incorporates plant material in a unique way to make for a one-of-a-kind hideaway. It's easy to come out of the retreat to eat, though, and the retreat also makes a safe depository for the egg sack. From the Harris Hideaway collection.
(The Desert Bush Spider model inside this wrap has an elongated, orange-brown cephalothorax covered in short white hairs. The brown abdomen has a dark, leaf-like marking bordered with white; legs are yellow brown.)
Hope you've enjoyed Sabino Canyon Fall Fashion Week 2014!
