Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this is a baby Orchard Orbweaver, these little guys were all over today!
Must have hatched recently, they're so tiny -about 4mm.

Hi, that’s so cute! It looks like an orchard orbweaver to me too. The spiderling orbweavers make tiny versions of the orb web to catch smaller insects. Please post a dorsal (of its back) photo of one as a new post if you can. Thanks for sharing this!
