oh what tangled webs they weave

A cool pic from the aptly-named totallycoolpix.com


Villagers stand next to trees covered in spider webs in the flood affected areas of K.N. Shah, located near Dadu in Pakistan’s Sindh province, December 7, 2010. The cocooned trees have been a side effect of spiders escaping flood waters in the area. Although people in this part of Sindh have never witnessed this phenomenon, they report there are now less mosquitoes, thus reducing the risk of malaria. Picture taken December 7, 2010.
