Excellent capture Nathan, like Ronnie I have seen hundreds of these tiny spiders in one tight ball. The mummy spider had left a single thread and one by one they climbed up into a overhanging tree. It took over an hour for them all to reach safety Smile

Well done to Dave for the ID and well done to you for this capture! I've never seen a multiple spider shot like this before and the focus on that middle one's eyes is fantastic.
