What a Tangled Web We Weave

Spider webs are real works of art. This web took between one and a half  to two hours to complete. Each frame is 4 seconds apart and it was encoded at 24 frames/sec.

It's interesting that a few times the spider digresses from its mission and goes backwards - perhaps for a quick snack? Then, on completion of the web there is the reward of a juicy meal. Awesome!
