eek!

 

Yesterday my friend Leslie was over and she asked what kind of bugs were those on my plant.  On closer inspection we found a nest of baby spiders – all huddled in a tight little ball.  When you touch a nearby leaf they all scurry out on the web.  Slowly they then make their way back to their huddle.  Adorable. 

Since I had my camera out I poked it into a neighboring shrub and took a few shots of the bumblebees. Fat little things. 

There was a time when I was a kid that I was so afraid of anything buggy or wiggly or reptile-y.  I was determined to never show this fear to my kids and have since grown to love all manner of critters in my garden.  

I’m glad I got over it.
