Author's notes

This tiny delicate looking spider was on this thin leafless branch about 1.5 metres from the ground. I think the round thing is a old nut or something and not created by the spider?. Are the tiny white things egg casings for the spider or something else? It looked a bit like a daddy long legs but the body shape is wrong.

I think the spider is a long Jawed spider (but hard to tell from the photo). I am pretty sure that the white things are not spider eggs - which are usually within egg sacs or clumped together. I guess they may be the protective cover of a scale insect.

thank Michael. Yeah sorry about pictures - it was very small and hard to focus with the 400mm lens. I need to use the other lens when there are no sign of birds!
