I&#039;m unsure if the egg sac at the top of the photo belongs to the spider. The species&#039; description states that the egg sac is usually well hidden, so it seems unlikely. Yet the spider did seem to have a keen interest in it.<br />
<br />
The bark is of a pine tree, likely Pinus sylvestris.<br />

        1. It was a joke :) If it was perfectly camouflaged, I wouldn't have detected it. Lame, I know. Posted 5 months ago
          1. Um, duh -- I already told you it was funny....see my comment above ;P. Posted 5 months ago
            1. I'm seeing it. Posted 5 months ago
              1. Ha! But, I am letting it go because I just realized that I didn't get the joke at all until 2 seconds ago when it finally hit me. So, since the joke was so pathetically bad, I am letting you win <3. Posted 5 months ago
  2. Great camouflage - better spotting Posted 5 months ago
    1. Hah, saw it because it moved. Posted 5 months ago
