Dillon Nature Center Walk

This week we walked over to Dillon Nature Center to learn about spiders.  The kids learned lots of new things and got to see some spiders in action.

This is a barn spider that makes an orb web (round and round).   There is a grasshopper stuck in her web.

This is a funnel web spider (her web is on the ground and looks like a kitchen funnel).  She has a stink bug in her web.

These spiders make very different webs and capture their prey very differently.  Ask your kids about the different webs.  They can also tell you about spiders that don't make webs, and spider babies!
