In the most unexpected places, in silent corners or in the middle of nature, spiders stop to create scenes of improbable beauty. The wind drags the webs away, the early morning dew and the rain make them sparkle, the winter froze them and gives birth to ice masterpieces. Our eyes become a prey caught by their beauty. Truly amazing…

How spider webs are made: "Orb webs are circular in shape and take about an hour to build.  The spider begins by making a four – sided frame, stretching between two objects, such a gateposts or trees.  Then the spin will add two diagonal line from corner to corner to make the frame stronger.  Next, threads are built from the center to the sides, almost like the spoke of a wheel.  The center of the web is made very strong.  Now, the spider spins a spiral from the center of the web out to the edges. Finally, the spider works back on the spiral toward the center, using stick silk so insects can be caught.  Orb webs are very strong and so not break in the wind, or when objects hit them."
