Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 13th November, 2019)
Terence, lovely pic, if its your own car can I suggest you either walk or catch a lift today, don't spoil it, its a beautiful construction probably took the little chap about an hour to build. Like it !
Out of all the creepy crawlies I think the spider is the best.
I always wondered how they got the first few stands of a web from one point to another, and a few weeks ago I found out that they can spit the strands across.
What sort of creature does this!
And a fine photo Terence.
I love cobwebs, so fine and intricate and so cleverly done. We don't give animals and insects credit for their capabilities.
If someone were to destroy it, the little chap would just shrug and build it again. Fine fellows spiders.
we had a spider who lived behind the wing mirror and went on many a trip with us. I wonder what happened to it when we swapped cars.
Imagine having to create this masterpiece of engineering just to catch your breakfast.
The idea of delicate cobweb lace, reminds me of all natural fibres. Silk, cotton, cashmere and wool as opposed to synthetic fibres that are now known to damage the planet..
Unusual photo today!
Fascinating spider webs, and yes finer than silk, so much so that they were used in aircraft gun and bomb sights during WW2.
So true Veronica, did you see the TV series The Secret Life of Landfill, Dr George McGavin took a look at child's acrylic dress uncovered from a 1950s rubbish dump, it hadn't rotted at all and he said that after a wash it would still be in the same condition as when it was put in the dustbin well over 60 years ago.
That's right Cyril and apparently we are breathing in tiny monocules of synthetic fibres and they are in the food chain. It takes thousands of years for synthetics to rot. I would rather pay a bit extra and buy natural and look after them, they still last if taking care washing and feel so much nicer to wear.
Meant 'molecules' - this daft iPad! Having said that I'm not too sure that's the right word either! Perhaps tiny particles....
