Artist's Description

This is probably the best shot that I’ve ever taken of these tiny spiders. They are tiny, at only a mm or two wide, and have a beautiful shiny silver teardrop-shaped body… hence their name. These spiders live symbiotically in the webs of larger spiders, where they perform house-keeping duties such as cutting leaves and dead insects from the web. This was only one of the tiny residents of a Master Wheel Weaver’s web on the bank of Hedlow Creek. The mosquito next to it gives a good idea of the size.
You really need to view this shot large…
