These little ladies can be found in the long grass at the bottom of a hedgerow or on the ditch banks,  anywhere the mower cannot reach.  The web is always near the ground where they catch their favorite food the grasshopper.  Interesting zigzag pattern they weave in the web.    They can bite, said to be like a Bee sting so don’t touch.
