After a big flood a very strange event occurs in the swamps and lagoons of the Lower Clarence, the appearance of billions of small brown spiders. Getting up close is not an event for the squeamish or arachnophobics as the ground is a moving sea of the little buggers.
They climb anything with height and then float off into the sky with their gossamer threads an airborne device. It doesn't photograph very well but everywhere you looked high into the sky there were thin wisps of spider silk. But of course what goes up must come down, so as you walk along webs are landing all about. The car looked like we had driven through a silk factory!
It is an extraordinary scene to pass kilometre after kilometre of spider web over everything.
It is one of those strange natural phenomena that make our world so interesting.
This is my contribution to Our World Tuesday.
