We have begun a live spider study.
This eight legged friend has decided that building a nest between a paper sign and glass is a safe place on our screen door.
It will provide us with a peak into the development of a spider nest and the laying of eggs.
We will just have to remember to carefully move the nest before all the little spiders hatch, and run down the door into our house.
Hmmmm…. What is the birth length for a spider?! We will find out soon I guess.
UPDATE: The spider must have figured out that our constantly opening screen door wasn’t really a good place to build a nest. It has disappeared now. Leaving just the ring of web on the door.
