It's very cool - thanks for explaining because I had no idea!
I remember as an arachnophobic child being terrified when I'd see large orbs in Mom's garden. Yet even then, after a good rain (or morning mist) I found their webs so intriguing and dazzling!
Today, I almost regret these guys can't be kept as indoor pets. lol Times change!
Thanks for sharing the pix -- I enjoy the gallery here a LOT!
