Ok admittedly spiders give me the creeps, so you don’t see them too often here. But occasionally I do photograph them. This post is a combination of photos from two different dates. On September 23rd, 2009 I saw this little nest tucked into the side of the brick. I assumed it was a nest for spider babies, because that’s what it looked like to me. But I wasn’t 100% certain at the time. I decided to photograph it and then look in on it from time to time. I figured I would probably never catch the babies on film, but I thought it might be worth a try.
This is what I saw in September:
I would take a peek at it from time to time, just to see if it was still there. And today (November 8th, 2009) I saw this. A nest full of little black baby spiders. They are so tiny it didn’t really give me the creeps too bad. LOL!
Here’s a close up:
Ok, they are a little creepy on close up. LOL
I could have gotten better macro shots but I was doing some serious stretching and balancing to get this shot, since they are somewhat blocked by big English boxwoods. So this was the best I could do, given the location. Still I thought it was pretty cool that I happened by at just the right time to catch a photo of them. I went back out a couple of hours later and they were all gone.
