Spider Web Trees in Pakistan

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

How oddly incredible are those photographs? In 2010 when big floods hit Pakistan, millions of spiders, as all living creatures needed to move higher than the water level so they climbed up the trees. The astonishing thing is that even though they were in a totally new habitat, they kept on spinning and weaving their webs creating those web-trees that I can’t help but be amazed of. How astonishing is nature? There is such a vibe about those photographs, isn’t there? For me it's the mix of sadness, peace and amazement. How do you feel about them?  xo

P.S: Also, remember the soldier's story?
P.P.S: Plus, phenomenon of Monarch butterflies:)

Young at Heart, you should totally try the egg salad:) It's lovely.

Diana Mieczan said...

I agree, Rita. It's creepy indeed but in that extraordinary way. Isn't it?

Diana Mieczan said...

Ele, I feel the same way. I am not afraid of spiders but I probably wouldn't want to walk under those trees:)

Lady Grey said...

It is amazing indeed - although I don't think I'd want to hang out under one of those!

Creepy and fascinating all at the same time. Adaptation is the key to survival.

So, uhh... I guess this means I need to stop complaining about the two spiders that have taken up residence on my front porch, huh? Especially now that they've stopped building them directly in front of doorways! ;-)

Cara said...

Those trees are breathtaking, Diana!
Although I wouldn't do a picnic under them (ewww!) I'm pretty sure the ants wouldn't be a problem a that place! hehe!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
Big hugs!

I think we can learn how when disasters comes to prepare, as they did. Move high and build a strong barrier.
They look like cotton candy that has gone moldy...
Not very tasty, but in their own little safety net. cocooned!
