Cobweb and stonework SBPhotography of old stonework and a cobweb: As you probably know, ‘cobwebs’ are ‘spider webs’. The gauzy appearance is different than the more ornate patterns woven by different families of spiders. Particulates gather upon the sticky webbing giving the cobweb that recognizable Halloween like design. Here old stonework and and old back door provide anchor points and privacy for the trap. Cyriak’s Creep Spider Animation “Cobwebs”….pretty cool.
