Some engraver sneaked that beastie in there. The background does look like a spider web, but I'll go with the scorpion - or maybe a Horn of Plenty - or a Chambered Nautilus - or a. . . ???. Nice find, whatever it is.

Edit:
I have found out that it is actually an owl, which has symbolism in Freemasonry. It is clearer on some bills than on others, depending on how the ink flows onto the plate.

Search "owl on dollar bill" on Google Images. You will see lots of explanations of the imagery, some make sense, and others stretch the imagination. Here is one that makes sense - there are three stylized images of an owl on the bill - the two on the lower margin are clearer:

Very neat! I called it a spider because when I was in grade school and was made aware of it's existance that's what I was told it was. But I will not call it that now in light of what you have shared! It is true that we can learn something every day!
