Baby Spiders

While camping last weekend I was out early one morning looking for something interesting to photograph. For me interesting could be anything from a big landscape to the smallest little bug. I was keeping my eyes open for a spider's web with dew on it when I noticed something different. On closer inspection I found it to be a web full of baby spiders.

I headed back that way just before sunset to see if I can get a nice sunset over the Gamtoos River and stopped at the baby spiders again. So this second pic is a different type of sunset photo. Sunset with baby spiders in the foreground.

  1. Hi there. I'm visiting from Marcelle's blog where she mentioned you today.
    This is an incredible photo. I've never seen baby spiders before and certainly not in the web like this.
    Marvelous pic!

  7. Eeeuw! Really not my cup of tea. Don't know if I would even stop to take a photo, so I think you're VERY brave!

  8. Very nice catch. I don't recall ever seeing baby spiders in a web. I'm may have to go a little spider hunt.
