Spiders, spiders everywhere
There are two species that seem to specialize in eating bees. The first one makes visible supports on its web that look like embroidery stitches to me. It also has a nickelodian-like green egg sack. I moved pots and relocated this one into a cardboard box with its egg sack. Was terribly afraid I had ruined it when it didn't move for 10 minutes, but later I found it eating its bee like business as usual. The second is a green on that doesn't seem to make a web. It just waits in lay on the plant near the blossoms. I found it first on the blackberry blossoms, then later on the eggplant (bottom shot).
