Spider babies! Lots of them. About 1mm. No idea what type of spider at this point.
Baby yellow garden spiders
Yes, they’re also called Orbweaver hatchlings. Can’t tell which species at this stage. When they are ready they will scatter (avoids inbreeding).
Thanks! I didn’t know they were also called that!
Thanks for your help! I was searching to find out what the ball of spiderlings i found in my garden today and saw your picture! Yellow garden orb weavers!! i have seen an adult in the same garden only once. Looking forward to seeing more this summer here in Stevensville, Montana, USA!
