I don't have a picture at this time that will compare to the one that PotEmUp put out there. That is just absolutely perfect. The only thing that I can add to it is the fact that it holds its spidering year round and is so thick that it tends to cup (the webbing pulls the edges into a cup shape). Thank you PotEmUp for this picture.
