Our little backyard needs some attention but it's a happy place for spiders - and today I took a closer look at the latest creche.
then as us humans are prone to do because we can't help it, I poked it with a stick - gently though...
run, little spiderling, run!
(actually they were pretty cruisey and didn't move away too far and when the thunderstorm came, after I'd raced inside with the camera, they simply cuddled in closer to the wall)
