Very hard to identify these spiders at this very early stage of development.

I thought as much. I just thought a brood such as this was just too tempting not to post! Every time you touched the leaves they were attached to, they all vibrated in to motion, and stopped as soon as the leaf was left alone.

That's interesting. Daddy-long-legs spiders vibrate their web when you disturb them, and some crane flies with very long legs also bob up and down for a while when disturbed.
