Baby Spiders.


As I walked in from my garden, I noticed a cluster of something in a spider's web. I thought it was a crumbled leaf or something. I did not have my reading glasses on so I could not make it out. I muttered to my wife about it as I tried to focus, but I could not make it out.

My wife, who did have her reading glasses exclaimed, "Ooh! They're all moving. They're baby spiders. 

I rushed in to get my glasses and came back out for a better look. Sure enough, it was so. Many tiny infant spiders. I have no idea what species they were but they were all clamouring about as though they wanted to be away from our scrutiny. My wife had also disturbed them by poking the cluster with a tiny twig.

I took out my mobile and had to get a photo.
