Are you Spider fanatic ?


I’m not much of a fan myself- so this picture horrifies me!

What you are seeing here is the unexpected side effect of the 2010 flooding in Sindh, Pakistan. Due to the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water took so long to recede, spiders and other creepy crawlies climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters. Many trees became cocooned in webs; a phenomenon that had never been witnessed by locals.
