more from the spider's web

I was fascinated to find this silky spider nursery full of junior spiders, guarded by mum lurking in the undergrowth. The nursery is surprisingly robust. I have no idea which species of spider builds these nurseries.

A nod to National Bug Week, eh? We love all kinds of bugs and spiders Here Amongst The Oaks. One's got to to live here! We even like tomato horn worms, if only to pester them before we toss them into the field. Grest photo Spot.
