30 Astonishing Photographs of Spider Webs

It’s fascinating to watch spiders spin their webs. What makes a particular spider create one design, while another will come up with something totally different? They truly are works of art, which catch flies as a bonus.

For photographers, spider webs are an excellent combination of biology and design. There are many ways in which you can use a spider web in your pictures. The threads can be used as leading lines, either going into the distance or pointing towards a spider. The center of a spider web makes for a good focal point in a picture’s composition. Spider webs also add an intriguing atmosphere to rooms and objects. One reason is because spider webs are associated with the fascination and fear that spiders trigger.

If you’re interested in taking spider web photos yourself, these resources may be useful.
