Poecilopachys australasiae in the late evening starting to make it's web.

Found in Australia and in NZ since 1970's.
It's a night time spider, which builds a small orb web at night, to catch moths etc, and dismantles it in the morning!
It must have been dismantling the web when I caught this shot this morning. There is web around it's front legs!
