Newborn spiders

Caught a pic of these newborn spiders last night - you can see them surrounding the pod they hatched from. I'm used to seeing them when they're older, about 1 mm big, but these are even smaller than that, have no markings, and have their legs all tucked in. The spider in the foreground is only as big as a pinky nail (and that includes its legs).

Teeny babies!
