Who could not notice the ephemeral beauty of spiders'
webs that get wet with the morning dew?
Throughout history, spiders' webs have inspired not only scientists, but artists and poets as well.
Spiders' webs are, so to speak, the work of an art, and are among the great wonders of natural world.
The variety of spiders' webs form one of the most fascinating and exquisite tales that natural history has to offer.

A poem written by EB White for his wife Katharine:
The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unwinds a thread of her devising:
A thin, premeditated rig
To use in rising.
And all the journey down through space,
In cool decent, and loyal-hearted,
She builds a ladder to the place
From which she started.
Thus I, gone forth, as spiders do,
In spider's web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken strand to you
For my returning.
