Fields of Webs During the Spiders’ Migration

This Australian field has been bizarrely blanketed by reams of spider silk, caused by wolf spiders migrating upwards after water flooded their ground dwellings. Silk cast from spiders’ bodies is captured by the light breeze. The wolf spiders use their spider silk like a parachute to float up to the sky and fly long distances in a natural migration phenomenon called “ballooning”.

The spider silk blanketing the fields like snow is called angel hair. If you’re scared of spiders, these fields might scare you, but they do look undeniably beautiful.
