Spider Web Art

Rob from the What Is It? blog was walking in the park this morning and found a spiderweb that’s a bit unusual. It has a stabilimenta shaped like a person! Wait, what’s a stabilimenta? It’s a decoration that a spider adds to its web, for several possible reasons, like camouflage or mate attraction. We all know it can also be used to save a pig’s life.



But what’s this one for? Could it be a warning to other spiders that humans are near? Or maybe an attempt to communicate with us? It’s most likely a case of pareidolia, but if the spider who made it is named Charlotte, all bets are off. -Thanks, Rob!
