cobwebs...

Maybe it's because Halloween is later this month, that I have a thing for cobwebs at the moment, especially when there is lovely light. It just fascinates me, all that intricate spinning of silk to make something so beautiful and delicate looking...

Though I read that the tensile strength of spider silk is greater than the same weight of steel with much greater elasticity. Who knew?
