The difference between utility and utility plus beauty is the difference between telephone wires and the spider web.

It looks a bit like snow storm today, but the big ‘flakes’ that are blowing in the wind are the fluffy seeds of something – probably a type of poplar tree.
Weighing almost nothing, these seeds dance in the wind until finally they get caught in something. Today, the something was a spider’s web. I can just imagine how unhappy the spider was when it discovered that it no longer had a nearly invisible trap system.
Are some kinds of spiders herbivores? I don’t know, but if they are, then this web will look like a buffet to them.
