I found the horde of spiders outside my condo building in Vancouver, BC. They caught my eye because they were in a big blob about the size of a loonie. (For those non Canadians participating, it was smaller than a golf ball, bigger than a grape) on some bushes. They actually looked like the centre of a daisy. When I looked closer it looked really weird so I poked the blob with my key and that's when all the spiders started spreading out as you see them in the picture.
I'm curious what kind of spiders these are. I'm also wondering if this is a pile of baby spiders that just hatched or if they move around in this horrific blob just waiting to take over the world.
