This is a detail of a web of a funnel spider web. The web seems to be an ongoing project of these large spiders. The webs acquire over time small bits of vegetation, dust, insect corpses and so forth. Holes are repaired with the spider's ample spinnerettes instead of remaking the whole web like many orb weavers do. The repair work more resembles quick spackling rather than carefully weaving.
