Another type of lighting that I like. Spiders are so clever with their silk. When I am forced to break one of their guyropes to a web to get by an Orb Spider's web. If I pause to watch, they gather up the line in a bundle. Bring it near their mouthparts and it disapears. I assume they ingest it then recycle it. Wonder how long it takes to get to the Spinarets?The guyropes arn't as sticky as the main web.

I'm alternately attracted and repelled by spiders... I don't like them indoors...but the large garden spiders are endlessly fascinating. It must have been a there were waves of rippling silk in the wind and the angle of the sun caught was strange to think that I could walk through it and not feel the silk on my face or arms...
Spiders recycle! that's a wonderful observation, Dorjac!
