This photograph shows a spider web covered with dew drops on a misty morning. The design is dazzling! Spider silk is the strongest natural fiber in the world. At one time the U.S. military considered making bullet-proof vests from it. If silk strands were as thick as a pencil, then webbing could stop a 747 in flight! A spider and its web were featured in the popular children’s book “Charlotte’s Web”.
