Wet spiderlings reposted

Something weird happened when I changed the lightning image in the 9/21 post 'Weather' to a scanned image. After that change, I was not able to add this image back into the post. Anyway, these then are the wet green lynx spiderlings that are just one day out of their egg sac.

What beautiful pictures! As I commented in my blog, I like looking at pictures of insects but I don't like them crawling on me! Your site is very bright and makes me happy when I look at it!

A great blog you got here! I was obsessed with fruit flies (drosophila) at one point of time. And studied then for hours. Your blog reminds me of those 'romantic' days. keep blogging!

Any time you get 'fruit flies' and 'romantic' in the same paragraph is a very good day. Thanks for that.

hey cheesemeister, even the most hardened bugophile gets creeped out sometimes: like when you stumble face-first into dewy spiderweb, then feel something crawling on your head. Also, certain species are on my bad list, tho I still strive to uncover their natural histories.

Thats a great one! :)

The baby spiders are always so cute, I love to watch them go. You can tap the web and they all scatter.

Have you read Barbara Kingsolver´s "Prodigal Summer"? If not, I think you might enjoy it! I really like your blog, it makes me homesick for SoCal, where I grew up.
