The lower surfaces of the tree branches are absolutely covered in cocoons. Hundreds upon hundreds of them. I gently gathered 10 cocoons and have them loose in a shoe box. Any tips on caring for them until emergence are welcome.

As strong as she is gruesome

She muscled the unfortunate victim, twice her weight (?), up the outside garage wall, then launched in a dive with furiously flapping wings, down into the forest below.
The only appendages she didn't nip off the spider were its pedipalps.
