Thinking About Spiders on my Dock

I’m fascinated by the design of spider webs. The strength of the silk and the overall design of the web itself are key factors in its resiliency. They are designed to sacrifice some failure points in order to preserve the overall integrity of the web. Even after facing extreme winds and torrential downpours they still survive.  How spider webs achieve their strength.

    I love how your image seems to emphasize the weight of water that is being supported by such fine filaments. Beautiful!
