I mentioned in my latest wildflower garden update about coming across a spiders nest full of baby spiders.

As promised here are a couple of photos for you.

The tiny ball was somewhere around 7 or 8 millimeters in length and I wouldn’t like to guess how many spiders were there, but it was probably at least one hundred.

I managed to get a piece of white card behind the suspended nest and quickly set up my tripod. I still had the full set of extension tubes fitted to the Tamron 90mm macro lens as described in that earlier post.

The spiders are European Garden spiders – Araneus diademata, probably the most common spider in the UK.

I wouldn’t like to guess how many spiders were there but it was probably at least one hundred

Time to look away if you suffer from arachnophobia or have a fear of spiders or creepy crawlies.

I think they look kind of impressive considering the size of them, but I certainly wouldn’t want to get too close to them lol!

I am really impressed with the Kenko extension tubes and highly recommend them to anyone interested in pushing the limits of close up and macro photography.

Thanks for looking

Cheers
