Day #122, along came some spiders

Each cotton plant now host spiders on the undersides of several leaves. Wherever they setup their webs, aphids disappear. Unfortunately, the spiders do not stray from their web-tents, and are constantly rebuilding homes to enjoy the next feast. These are photos of an Upland cotton leaf.

Some other character is also having lunch, as can be seen by the holes on the leaf. Whatever it might be, the Pima cotton plants are untouched by this grazer.
