What could be more fascinating and beautiful than a spiderweb? I'm seeing them all around the perimeter of the house, tenanted by summer-fattened spiders. My family spent the weekend admiring an intricate web outside the kitchen window; my daughter and I both lent a name to the spider, dubbing it Clarence Montgomery. We all watched as Clarence M. crawled down from the web center to nab a fly below. The web was torn in the process, but Clarence didn't seem to mind. Dinner was more important.
To me, spiderwebs have seemed always the same from web to web. But around the world, many kinds of spiders spin contrasting designs. Here's an interesting look at different web decor (thanks to the Presurfer).
When's the last time you admired a spider's web? Do. Write about it.
