Web Photos

Send in your webs! I have heaps of photos of spiders, but very few of webs, so send them in!   I'll pick a "WEB OF THE MONTH " or maybe year going by the lack of photos at present, and feature it in larger size. There are 2 types of spiders, the hunting spiders like the wolf spiders and tarantulas and the web spinning spiders like the Argiopes and Garden Orb Weavers. All spiders can spin silk but only the web spinning spiders spin webs for their homes.  Many thanks for allowing me to use these photos. All photos are copyright to their owners and may not be reproduced without permission.

SPIDER WEBS

AUGUST, 2005

Very hard to decide this months winner - I liked Dave Neu's webs from 19 August and the sliver argiope's web from 14 August. For sheer volume of photos of webs,  Eddie has done a great job and thanks to all the other contributors.

However, I think this month it will have to be Dave Neu's lovely web. Congratulations Dave!!

AUGUST

Greetings!  This is a spider's web I encountered while I went hiking in Kythira island, Greece. The first shot shows the spider with a cicada in its web. The second photo, shot two days later, shows the same web and spider. There was no trace of the cicada.

I'm in central Indiana, USA, and we're at the peak of orb weaver, mosquito, cricket and cicada season right now. I figured I'd share a couple shots of their webs with you (apologies for the excessively large images, better too much data than not enough. Feel free to crop and/or resize). The first two: orb_web_on_sign.jpg and orb_web_on_sign_spider.jpg are located on a street sign about a block from my apartment. The web stretches from the sign itself, about 8 feet high and sticking out about 3 feet, to the signpost near the ground. The spider is hiding right at the base of that large support strand, and has probably a good 3/8 of an inch diameter abdomen. The second two are right outside my apartment, another garden orb weaver. This web is REALLY impressively large, with two big support strands that go up to a tree branch about 14 feet high, and anchoring to the bushes about 1 foot off the ground. He sits here about 3 and a half feet across the ground, at about 10 pm. orb_near_apartment_overexposed is overexposed for the spider himself, of course, but really highlights the web. Of course, the spiral structure of the web is about two times wider than the image captures, which is
just dang impressive. The last one captures a LOT of detail for the spider, and gets some of his web too (thanks to 5 megapixels and optical zoom). Just thought I'd share with you. Love the site.  - Dave Neu. Click for a larger view.

This spider started out making small webs in the spindels on my deck...she has now come to make these huge webs right outside my front door. She is a beauty and I look forward to seeing her new creations every night. She usually doen't make the webs until after dark....hard to get a great pic! Enjoy, Brooke

Hi Glen, Well as you will have realised now I have sent you a few pictures of spiders and webs that I have, hope they are of some use to you. I have recently taken up photography in that I walk out On Dartmoor, one of our national parks and I am interested in taking pictures of wild flowers, insects, etc. and consequently I do see the occasional spider, the web one with water caught my eye because I am going to enter a photo competition with "water" as the theme and the webs with water caught my eye. Are you in Australia? I was out there when I was in the army, many years ago.Take care, let me know if the photos are any good. Regards, Eddie.

Here is a spider we found in front of our house last night weaving a huge web that stretched from a tree, in front of the front door, ending at the side of the house. He was light tan in color with markings on the underside of his abdomen. We are in San Jose, CA. We suspect it is an orb weaver and here is a photo for your website. Regards,
The Alejandros

The Spider in this picture (graden orb weaver I think) made a 3 foot web  right outside my back door. Sadly, it'll have to be moved away if I'm  going to leave the house.That web is almost 3 feet across in the big picture (which didn't turn  out so well)

Hello, You have a very nice spider site. Here is a picture of a web I have NEVER seen before. This photo was taken from above the web. I have never seen a net pattern like this before and was truly in awe of the work the spider must have done to create it. The picture was taken in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania on August 5th, 2005. It was on the outer edge of a bush and used the limbs & needles to secure it. The netting was horizontally in the middle of a larger web that seemed to be just randomly placed strands. It appeared to almost be a catch for any insect that flew into the upper webbing and then dropped onto the net, almost like a net below circus performers. Thanks, Bob Kurtz
