Can You Spot Them?

If you don't like spiders, best not to scroll any farther. If you do, see if you can't spot the hatchlings below. I have them circled in the second photo. My husband took this shot when we went out to the Madison Dam near Ennis, Montana.

I really don't like spiders.. but I looked anyway. I'm only squirming a bit. I tend to photograph them myself, despite my dislike.. they truly are fascinating creatures. Nicely done.

Thank you both for being brave enough to check out the spiders. I think this is a nursery web spider. I'm not completely sure.
My guess is based on the shape and markings. The fact that mama is still around. (Every time I've seen Orb Weavers hatch, mom was long gone.) And the fact that we found it near water. Not the most scientific identification.
Some people can't tell all the little brown birds apart. I always think I can't tell all the little brown spiders or beetles apart.
