I found some newly-hatched spiders on my hose reel the other day. They were huddled together for warmth in what I affectionately call “SpiderBall”.

Awesome and slightly creepy at the same time.
i have to say that is one of the most awesome photos i’ve seen in a long long time! thank you for deciding to share it.
The whole ball was only the size of a coin, and I was delighted to see them given they will prey on all the evil plant-eating pests in my garden.

You are a very observant person. I have never seen baby spiders, but I have spiders in my garden. Maybe I need to make observation more of a habit of mind.
I have problems with spiders. They don’t bother me in the garden. I barely flinch when one crawls by my hand while I’m weeding, but I have an irrational fear of them inside, or in magnified photos. Twitch. I had to page down, and wasn’t able to look at the photo closely. I’m sure it was lovely though ;)
And then step two of that lovely bud is when it blossoms in the sunshine, spreading slowly out over Mama’s web. Thanks for evoking a childhood memory I’d completely forgotten.
That is a cool find!
Too Wild! I’ve never seen this before!
Wow that is so cool but kinda gross too. :)
nice! it’ll be fun to see where they all go… and what tasty critters they eat along the way…
You left yours alone. Recently when I saw one, I couldn’t help but touch it and see the little guys skitter around. I guess I’ve got an evil streak. Pretty dang fascinating, aren’t they? Too bad they get BIG. :)
