I came across some odd things the other day which I assume are spider's webs holding eggs. I'm not really sure, and I've not a clue how to look these up either!
They were on some tress on the edge of a path. Not hidden, right out in the open. The web part was thick, really thick. These weren't small either, I guess they were a bit bigger than a tennis ball but not as large as a soccer ball, each round part that is. They were maybe 1 metre off the ground.
When I got quite close, there were little black flecks inside the web that I thought looked like baby spiders. But it could be my imagination!
Anyway, there were three of these 'contraptions' within a couple of metres, and then I didn't see any more.
So, any ideas what these are?
