Spider Webs: Wonderful Architecture

cb mania....!

A spider web, or cobweb is a device built by a spider out of proteinaceous spider silk extruded from its spinnerets.

Spider webs have existed for at least 140 million years, as witnessed in a rare find of Early Cretaceous amber from Sussex, southern England.

Insects can get trapped in spider webs, providing nutrition to the spider; however, not all spiders build webs to catch prey, and some do not build webs at all. The main difference between spider webs and cobwebs, is that spider webs are still in use webs, while cobwebs are webs that have been abandoned.

Here is collection of spider web images that shows us how wonderful and beautiful those creations can be (click on images to enlarge them).
