    Great pics, especially of the mother. I don't know that I'd want to get close enough to get those shots. Haha.

    Amazing shots! We had a mama spider in our kitchen window get really huge and then lay a giant egg like that. I used to watch her with my son, who called her "Charlotte". We never saw the egg hatch, and never even knew whether it did or not. What did this egg look like after the little ones had escaped?

    Here's a video series you may be interested in. I was wondering about the life cycle of the cicada as I have found a few larval casings and dead bugs while hiking and I like to show them off while supply teaching.

    Anyway, I found Life in the Undergrowth by David Attenborough.

    You might be interested in the amazing macro-photography. How they track along the cicadas and keep them in focus without hand-held jitters, I have no idea.

    Thought of you tonight on my way to my gig, Fishman10. I had a hobo spider on my bass bag and it didn't want to let go. I might have actually gotten bitten by it, trying to get it off (which was harder than you would think). I didn't feel it but one of my fingers swelled up.

    What is it with spiders and bass players all of a sudden?

    Nice shots! I've always had a bit of a spider phobia (it's not nearly as bad now) but have also long had a fascination with spiders. They're such cool creatures. Ah, there's one on the ceiling now... :)
