Garden Spider vs. Grub Worm

Garden Spider and Grub Worm

We saw this black and orange fella just hanging out on a cool morning, and my brother had the rather cool idea of giving him some breakfast. He started by digging up a grub worm and dropping it in the web, which the spider promptly encased in silk for a future feast. He also added a cricket and a grasshopper to the insectular smorgasbord (click the photo to see my Flickr gallery, and you can find a picture of the grasshopper) but I like the composition of this photo over some of the others.
