Normally you wouldn’t even see me as my web is designed for transparency. But the fog has left droplets of water on it, so it’s visible if you look carefully. The design is not unique. The Creator taught our species how to make it so we could catch our meals efficiently. As you can see, it takes a LOT of work and the material I use is very delicate, strong, yet flexible.
If we have families to feed, the web must be really big and placed strategically. Some are vertical, others horizontal, but none of them are noticeable unless you look very closely. Sometimes they seem to almost be your imagination. Even those webs that soar into the sky must be firmly anchored to the ground to maintain just the right amount of tension.
Other species of spiders build differently. Instead of an open weave pattern, their webs are more like tissue paper or the wisp of a feather. It all depends on what you want to catch. The web has to be well-placed and strong enough to be effective.
And when the large ones come and break up our handiwork, we sigh and begin again.
