I have no idea what type of spider spins this web.

It was about the size of a soccer ball.

Paula said...

Wow that is a weird web. I have never seen anything like it.

Chris in Oxford said...

What a cool shot! Both nature and abstract.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Why do you freak me out with stuff like this?

Daisy said...

hey you're right! it's difficult to be wordless!

TorAa said...

Ooops - what is going on? Spam or virus? *giggles*.

A great capture

Bevson said...

Huh! That is pretty weird. And huge!!! Be careful, I would hate to see who spins it.

Turnbaby said...

I am so fascinated by spider webs !! Way cool--and you have to think there's more intelligence going on in the creation of that than there was in doing what I've got posted today *tee hee*

G'day from Australia, Catherine

I followed your link from Hammer's blog. That spider web picture is awesome.

And as someone who lives in Oz, where the spiders are pretty famous, I have to ask the question: if the web's that big, how big's the spider?

Nice Wordless Wednesday shot. I guess you might like the one I posted for Wordless Wednesday as well. It's natural colours, not digitally enhanced in any way - and just shows you some of the amazing shades we see in our sky here.

I like your camera work. Well done

Cheers

David

Love spider webs.
Of course I had "step into my lair" zipping through my head as I saw this.

I looked at the large view to get an idea and I know NOTHING but I remember seeing, while trying to identify one of my spiders, funnel or tunnel spiders. Your web has an opening. I don't know if its for babies or for prey. Try bugguide.net, they have helped me a bunch!

Amazing Gracie said...

I sure hope it was the web that is the size of a soccer ball and not the spider!
I love spider webs, too, but this guy looks as though he was smokin' crack while spinning...
Thanks for visiting...
~~~Blessings~~~

Barbara H. said...

That is indeed a weird web! Cool, though.

Desert Songbird said...

Ewwww! That's wicked!

Linda said...

"What a tangled web we weave ..."

That is one very creepy looking web. I'm not much of a spider fan so I get the feeling that one would have really crept me out!

Shan said...

Just looking at that creeps me out--I have a huge fear of spiders. *shudder*
