Spider Shrouds

Not so long ago I posted an article about the spiderweb shrouded trees after the floods in Pakistan. Recently I came across some remarkable photos of spiderwebs shrouding entire fields and buildings in Australia. Flooding there has caused spiders to build these elaborate nets to stay above the water level.

At first glance it almost looks like snow blown lightly across the ground, but it’s actually the work of millions of tiny sheet-web weaving spiders and wolf spiders.

While perhaps not as eerie as the shrouded trees in Pakistan these gorgeous webs look truly ethereal! Like some sort of landscape in a fantasy novel.
