A web hanging on my railing (Fibers from nature)

  • Ajay Prakash

A web was seen hanging on my railing. I could not see any insect nearby. The insect had woven the web at night probably and had vanished with the dawn.

I carefully fixed the web on the slide as it was swaying with the breeze. On looking through a foldscope, a mesh of entangled fibers was seen. I tried to look at the fibers through a polarized film also.
