This little spider seems to have made a few errors in its web, and has had a go at ladder stitch as well… certainly not Charlottes web…

Adore nature in all its myriad forms, a testament to the designer.. I never cease to be amazed at the wonder that surrounds us and am continually in awe as I see the photos that are display on this site of each persons views of this grand world we inhabit… I am a retired nurse and enjoying just being able to take time to smell the flowers so to speak..

    LOL – cute title and great shot of the stabilimentum in the web! Congratulations on your feature in Insects, Bugs and Creepy Crawlies – FAVE:>)

  • Thank you Mother nature, I didn’t realise I had been featured.. pardon my ignorance but what is a stablimentum.. is that the ladder like structure in the web, I have noticed it in other webs in the garden from the same species of spider…

    You are exactly right:>) The stabilimentum is the zig zaggy structure that has had scientists studying and discussing it’s use for quite a while. It is what gives the Argiopes one of their common names “Writing Spider”. Sometimes this kind of structure is seen by insect prey in another color plane (like infra red or ultraviolet). No definite determination has been made yet, to the best of my knowledge; here are a couple web sites that discuss it.
