Moved

 
nursery
Today, I found this one again and another, on an adjacent weed.
They both were sitting on and near a little nursery web they had made using some leafs and web that were filled with some tiny little spiderlings.

 
You're lucky
to have so many near you. I haven't seen any of these in a long time.

 
It's funny
Normally I see a lot of big agirope, and maybe one mira, but this year, no agirope yet and mira everywhere!

 
Maybe they are direct
competitors and when one does well the other doesn't? It doesn't seem like that would be the case though since one is a web spider and the other is a hunter.
