p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Spitting spider sharing prey with spiderlings!


Mommy spitting spider sharing her moth prey with her precious bunch of spiderlings. I have never seen anything like this. I thought spiderlings normally subsist on yolk until after the first molt?

Mommy and spiderlings sharing moth prey for supper.




A crop of the above:


There were two parasitoid wasps(?) on the eggs.

Wow, fascinating stuff Kurt! Amazing body shape shown in the last shot. Really like the second shot on black too.

Very nice. Funny how it looks slightly different than the ones I've seen here. Have never seen one feeding prey like that. Those spiderlings are pretty darned big compared to Mommy. I would have thought that they would have already left home in search of their own kills. That watermark is relatively new, right? Copyright concerns?

Nice series. Pity about the watermark. If someone with a little knowhow wants it off it's not that difficult I believe, so you are only aiming at the casual abuser? Or what's the logic to something so many frown on, and argue the effectiveness of?

From what little I know anything uploaded to facebook all but belongs to them, flickr has always been a scavengers feeding place.

Why now? Recent issues or just a change of mind?

Thanks for looking and commenting, Brian, kmunroe. Mark.
