This is a photo of a mature female Barn Spider (Neoscona crucifera) finishing a meal. Within seconds after capturing this image she flicked the "meat ball" at me, discarding it from her web. When a spider finishes eating an insect, the "meat ball" is often all that is left of the once healthy insect.
