ON THE WEB

in #photography5 months ago

Today I had a lot to do, and I still have, both online and offline ... preparing some longer posts than the one you're reading now, planting some tomatoes and similar garden stuff, soon I'll have to go in the city and buy some things ... so for today I took just three old photographs ... and I'll try to make a short but relatively decent post out of them.

Here you can see the young, not completely developed Wasp spider (Argiope bruennichi).
The function of the circular zigzag construction that looks like some kind of nest still isn't clear.... when the spider grows, he ... or she ... will build the zigzag part in a vertical row through the orb, instead of this nest - like shape.

On this photograph you can take a look at the adult female. While on the following ( and the last) picture ...

... is the Araneus diadematus spider, decorated with the beautiful symmetric design that looks like some medieval heraldic detail.
As always in these posts on HIVE, all the photographs are my work.

Glorious -- this is everything I love about spiders, although once they come into the house they have to die ...

I am quite convinced that the ancestors of these spiders came with UFO which crashed on earth millions of years ago! Their great great great great great grand-parents survived and propagated till resulted in present day spiders!!

:D They arrived in the space cocoon, a silky spaceship ... these first spiders were technologically very advanced ... but here on Earth they abandoned all that, got much smaller and diversified in many species ... that use only webs for hunting, no more space travels and stuff like that.

Hahaha! You should be a film producer!

Wow! What a shame they all lost their special ability!

:D
