Sometimes I like to go for late night walks, which help me to think and give me time by myself. While wandering past the sandy area next to the local graveyard, I noticed the fleetest hint of movement on the ground and immediately investigated. After some careful looking, I noticed that the movement was from an open hole in the ground and initially I thought “Oh a burrowing wolf spider”. Then I noticed it: The silk and dirt lid sitting next to the hole.
The movement had been a trapdoor spider! Now I just had to figure out how to photograph it.
