This morning my wife and I noticed an unusual amount of spider activity on our wooden terrace. It was all over, from the table and chairs, to the corners of the porch and the fences. The beautiful patterns spiders created were so fascinating, it made us talk about it for a relatively long time. We discussed how did they do it, where did they begin from, and where did they hide? It reminded us of a highly professional craftsmanship.
I proposed that they probably initiated with making a straight line, and then began from the middle and building outwards.
I made a short video showing a spider doing his thing wrapping up the victim into its silk.
I found this video from BBC, which explains and shows exactly how they make the web. Fascinating stuff.
