Have you ever stopped to think about spiders and their webs?
Every time I encounter a spiderweb, I either freak out because I’ve already walked through it or I look closely at its intricacy.
Until now, I’d never really looked into the process behind the construction of these delicate yet amazing masterpieces.
When a man named Mark Gildner set up a time-lapse camera to capture footage of clouds rolling in, he soon realized that a hardworking spider had taken over his shot. Then his project went in a completely different direction.
In the video below, posted on July 19, 2017, the tiny insect dangles in the air and connects the base of his spiderweb.
Soon, he circles around the outline he created and strengthens the creation as he goes along.
The spiderweb comes along quickly and the spider doesn’t even stop for a break. The sped-up footage shows just how determined this spider is, considering how long it takes to finish in real time.
He continues inward, and his movements get smaller, which means the web is almost complete. There it is, from start to finish!
Check out this amazing time-lapse footage of a spider building a web in the video below, and please SHARE if you think Mark was left with a cool find on his camera!
