Life amidst the forest debris - a spider spins its web

While taking the photo of the yarrow calyxes several days ago, I saw this on the forest floor beneath the yarrow plant. A spider has spun a funnel-shaped web among the dead leaves and twigs and was waiting for a meal to drop in. If the resolution were great enough, you could clearly see the spider sitting at the bottom of the funnel.
