The [Spider] Web

Image credit: 

Beautiful and creepy: this video uses macro photography showing a spider's web, covered in droplets of dew. At least one of the spiders is a European Garden Spider (there are zillions of them in my yard).

If you're arachnophobic, don't watch. If you're a little skeezed out by spiders, actually DO watch, since it's mainly just empty webs, beautifully photographed. The spider shots are in the second half.
