WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Today I went out on the balcony to lie down, when I saw many spiderlings that were exploding in all directions with their little spider parachutes. It was AMAZING!!! They were so tiny, only about 2 mm long. The first thought that popped into my head was: I wonder if they taste good? But I decided to just observe them, from underneath! So I lay down right under them. Some of them landed on me and started to crawl into my fur. It tickled!
We didn’t get a video of them flying, but here is what we got after some of them decided to settle down and stay on our balcony:
The title of this post came to us because Zoe had just watched the movie Charlotte’s Web a couple of days ago. Zoe cried her eyes out! (And so did her mom.)
Young spiders can move away from the place where they hatched by sending out a strand of their silk and riding it on the wind. Sometimes they “fly” for hundreds of miles.
Wow, what an airhead! Just like you, Lola! Oh, sorry, did you say something, Sasha?
