30 Days Wild – Day 11 – Baby Spider Discovery

Today’s 30 Days Wild nature find involved a bunch of spiders that have hatched out on our bin. There were almost 70 of the little yellow and black babies huddling together to eventually form a tight group. I am not sure what type of spider these are as I have never seen them before. I am also wondering what the benefit to them is for huddling together – I guess it pays to be a part of a swarm when trying to defend themselves.

 
Ideally I would have a super-awesome macro photo of them too, but this is something to aim for in the future.
