Rainbows in a web....and preening in the rain
You have to watch this video carefully to get the effect.
This is a
FUNNEL WEB SPIDER (or WOLF SPIDER)
web, on the ground.
As I move the point of view, the sun’s rays hit the web, and prismatic colours appear in a kind of sheen. Do watch…it’s stunningly beautiful!
Only a birdbrain would think of sitting in the rain to preen oneself! Here’s an
ORIENTAL MAGPIE ROBIN
sitting on a pole, preening itself and drying itself busily…it seems unaware that it is still raining!
You can hear the rain!
