This was fascinating to watch…

She was laying her eggs…

As a child, the bit that I really didn’t appreciate in Charlotte’s Web was the graphic depiction of thousands of tiny spiderlings spreading everywhere…

Maybe I’ll move the housing to a more suitable location when hatching is due… out of concern for the babies you understand, nothing to do with the fact that they are right by my work table

Clearly no tweaks, twiddles or special effects…..just a moment in time caught on my phone.
