Weird and Wonderful Nature


Maybe it is because I am originally a city girl that I find this so exciting but during our walks up and down the lake last week I came across these astonishing spider webs covering trees and bushes.

Now I’ve been trying to find comparable images on google but I can only find similar ones in cases where the spiders were running away from flood water which certainly isn’t the case here. There hasn’t been that much rain nor is the lake that close to the webs to warrant any sort of fleeing from water.

They are beautiful but a little freaky.

I would love to hear from anyone who knows a bit more about spiders out of interest and lest I need to explain this one day. Is this normal spider behaviour?

Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

  1. Are you sure it’s spiders? Here when we see that phenomenon it’s something called web worm and it pretty much kills the trees! -Amy at
