[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A spider web or cobweb is a device built by a spider out of proteinaceous spider silk extruded from its spinnerets. Insects can get trapped in spider webs, providing nutrition to the spider; however, not all spiders build webs to catch prey, and some do not build webs at all.
Spiders have several spinneret glands located at their abdomen which produce the silken thread. Each gland produces a thread for a special purpose. Seven different gland types have currently been identified, although each species of spider will possess only a few of these types, never all seven at once.

Hi Sibel,
I like the clarity of the web and the rainbows colours of the incoming light defracted by the lens. It gives a special effect and looks exciting.
