On Antelope Island I came across a fence post that was
covered with tiny black spiders running
around spinning webs from every stick that was poking out.
This little male seemed to be the most industrious so I
studied him for quite a while. I had to be careful
that he didn't spin a web over to me and make me or my camera part of
Some of them were just biding time on the post and when a
good breeze came
up they ballooned off to places unknown. What a neat group of
Bugguide helped me with identification of these little cobweb spiders.
