Your spider of the day

A bird poo spider with her eggs.

I am a real spider lover, so when I discovered this stunning girl hanging in an oak tree at the front of my house, I had to share an image. This is a bird poo spider – her body camouflaged in patterns of white and brown to resemble a bird dropping hanging from a leaf. She has a collection of eggs almost as big as she is and, if you look closely, you will see a tiny little spiderling hanging beneath her, as well as one sitting on her back.
