This just reminded me of that scene in Shrek 1, where Fiona catches the flies in a spiderweb for Shrek...like cotton candy. Those trees look like that scene! {D

Cool, albeit somewhat creepy :D...but I'm so glad they're seeing the potential benefits of it all (not just getting together a mob to go destroy it).

There's something you don't see every day. I wonder how the birds feel about the spiders' take-over?

Crazy how such small creatures can do this! I'm really impressed, thanks for sharing!

I love it :) Here's something similar that happened here in Texas about 4 hears ago.

And here are a few others from the same photographer:

nice... but don't think I'd be walking under that tree lol... reminds me of a time when I was a kid walking though the flood drain what ever it's called... I walked to one side of it... looked back and saw spiders dripping from the ceiling... ugh, hated having to cross back over lol.... as much as I enjoy them, being covered in spiders is not fun!!!

I saw the one in Texas on Wild Case Files (Nat Geo WILD). Funny how some people still really think there are gigantic spiders like the movies.

ShadowBlade wishes there were big spiders like in the movies.:(

I like to think there is a giant spider that lives in my closet and comes out at night, feeding on escaped feeder insects and local pomeranians.
