Macro in the Garden - Spiderlings and other Inhabitants

Garden Spiders spin a cocoon around their eggs in the autumn and after a few days guarding the nest the female dies and the spiderlings hatch in the spring. They spend their time till the first moult huddled together though they disperse rapidly if touched. The Cucumber spider was the same size -around 2 mm. This week we have had Broad-bodied and Four-spot Chasers hatch out from the pond.
