Today has been a spidery day. Not really my favourite kind of day, but interesting nontheless. First, the girls found a nest of baby black and yellow garden spiders on the side of their slide. The little things ball up close together and then spread out before balling up again. The fully grown version can be found in the garden through the summer. They’re quite impressive, but harmless.
We also found this big guy today on the ground in the back garden of our house in Nova Scotia. It was about 5 cm long in total. Haven’t identified it yet. Any ideas?
