The building of a spider web

September 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On the night of September 5, 2016, I tried to capture the construction of a web by Madame Arachne, an Neoscona crucifera spider.  If you have never watched an orb-web spider build its web, you have missed an absolutely amazing event.  The precision and speed with which they construct their web is unbelievable, and the technical data would require an engineer to explain as far as strength, angles of tension, and so on.  Absolutely amazing.  There are a total of 13 photos in this gallery, showing the beginning to end construction.  I hope you enjoy.
