Growing on soil in mixed hardwood forest.
Need help with this one. Has a line spread between two branches of a black hills spruce, little gobs of web going vertically and spider is camouflaged as one of these gobs. He has himself all folded in and is the second "gob" down from from the top. Unfortunately could not get a good close up.
