In between colony maintenance and prepping my proposal for my first committee meeting I snuck a quick half hour in the annex to photograph the resident cellar siders. It seems every out of the way corner of my space in the annex has at least one of these spiders. I keep these spiders well nourished with the escaped insects from my cages and greenhouse plants. You should also check out these pictures of an expectant cellar sider and her babies over at Sean’s blog.
