This post is not for arachnophobes …
Just look what I found in the garden the other day! This is really close up, as these tiny orb spider babies are only about 1.5mm across, and it’s not the greatest picture. Me and the kids were totally fascinated by them.
If you blow on the ‘ball’ all the spiders scatter down the threads, and than slowly climb back up again, reforming their ball for safety. When we went out the next day – it had vanished!
