A Spider Heart and a Fish Egg(?)

I am up in Grass Valley, CA visiting an aunt and uncle that live on 7 acres here. On their property is a beautiful fish pond, and the day I arrived I was told that the fish were spawning. I sampled the water from the shallows where they are spawning, and believe I found an egg next to the piece of spirogyra algae – I am not entirely sure of it however…can anyone offer more expertise?

also I was happy to find a spider in this bush and get some footage of its beating heart to show my aunt and uncle…you can hear some good reactions in the audio commentary 🙂

That’s all for today!
