Extreme Motherhood

The huntsman spider with its brood of babies, recently hatched from eggs in that patch of white under it., and the mother have been probably guarding that nest for weeks already not feeding nor moving in all that while.


Spotted by damselfly. It is almost invisible against the tree bark. It can be seen here only because of the side lighting.


You have to see LARGE to see the baby spiders.
