  1. I’ve never seen one of these webs, and would love to come across one. It does look like a zig-zag stitch, but it reminds me of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” (I may need to find something to get that out of my mind, lest I hear it playing for the rest of the day!)

  2. Great shot! I love the rather demonic face that a lot of these have on their abdomens; it’s a good way to ward off predators! They say the zig-zag pattern may have a dual purpose: to warn birds and those approaching the web and to emit (reflect) ultraviolet light to attack insects.


  3. Beautiful poem. Small world, I have that exact pose of Argeope spider tattooed on my arm. They are unique for their zig-zag web pattern. 🙂

  4. I love these spiders! We had one on our back porch for a season — she actually left her egg sac and we had hopes of seeing thousands of babies parachuting through the air. Alas, we missed it. And I took many shots of her, but none so good as yours. Beauty in creatures most people call ugly…If we look for it, it is there.
