You can take the GRITS out of Florida, but you can't take Florida out of the GRITS!

Babies on the way!

I found these two spiders on a Gumbo Limbo tree at work, guarding what I assume are their odd egg sacs.  I have googled and googled but cannot find anything that helps me identify what kind of spiders these are.  Any ideas?  They are small and pretty flat...




There are two of these spiders hanging out guarding their respective sacs in a nearby tree.  I "believe" they are Leucauge venustas.  Again, anyone know for sure?

You might want to check out http://www.spideridentification.org/ to help ID those arachnids! P.S. Don't forget we have lots of little pipevine swallowtail caterpillars for u they are exploding in size by the minute!!!
