Silky cocoon on leaf of grass - closeup, Heeswijk-Dinther, Netherlands I found this silky cocoon-like structure stuck to a leaf of grass. I don&#039;t think it&#039;s a cocoon, possibly a spider nest?<br />

      1. Lol. The egg sacs for this family are pretty characteristic in that they look like upside-down wine glasses. So, once you know that, it's fairly easy to recognize ;). Posted 19 days ago
