Wasp Spider Egg Sac
Comments(4) # Wasp Spider Egg Sac london e17

This strange cauldron shaped vase has been intricately woven by the Wasp Spider, possibly the one we saw last week. Inside are next year's spiders. I can only find one female Wasp Spider alive now but I'm glad to report there are six of these egg sacs in the area I usually find the wasp spiders. Each is about an inch across. I've yet to come across one being made so have no idea how long they take.....maybe next year I'll cath one being built. Canon EOS 40D
