Spider babies! Lots of them. About 1mm. No idea what type of spider at this point.

Yes, they’re also called Orbweaver hatchlings. Can’t tell which species at this stage. When they are ready they will scatter (avoids inbreeding).

I must be weird because I find this picture amazing and beautiful. Is it strange that I hope to see the same thing someday?
