Spider weaving its web, a time lapse

Over an hour and a half of construction captured by a picture taken every four seconds, a spider weaves its web. This one is a larger size, but there’s some extra climbing involved when you’re a smaller spider.

Related reading: all about spider webs, including the different structures. Related watching: more spiders, including this video of a Tube Web Spider, a Stag Beetle, and a Long-horned Beetle at the Natural History Museum in London.
