It's possible it is a wooly aphid.View attachment 59538View attachment 59539 Carefully look at these two pictures. I can sit on my deck and my eyes catch this little floating white glob among the trees. although as the sun is shinning I some time think there are little quick flapping wings on each side, but it could be my eyes. kept shooting camera at it. finally got one and cropped it out. it seems to float at no real direction , perhaps just the faint breeze. think its a spider up chuck. but interesting. not the first morning I 've seen this.
A spider egg sac. Some spiders attach silk to a sac and let it float around until it attaches to something whereupon the sac hatches its eggs and the baby spiders start the whole process again.interesting, maybe something that fell off a leaf above. but it never continues downward to the ground, just kinda floats and swings a bit. so must have some web attachment I can't see. just interesting. size--its no bigger than my thumb nail, if that.
Neat. well, there were a few floating about for a while. Nature is wonderful.A spider egg sac. Some spiders attach silk to a sac and let it float around until it attaches to something whereupon the sac hatches its eggs and the baby spiders start the whole process again.
I have been watching cwd travel my way for some years. It has shown up in the middle of Mississippi. I live to the east in Alabama.My guess is it is a future dinner for a large spider. It has wrapped it well to preserve it and to keep other animals from devouring it. I have seen these while out deer hunting in the fall.
I live in the middle of cwd. In fact there is a cwd station about 2 miles from my house. I saw my first cwd deer about 3 weeks ago while driving into Bandera and it is not a pretty sight. I had no idea it is this far spread. I always thought it was just a Texas problem
