Absolutely amazing!

Trees cocooned in spiders webs

"An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs. People in this part of Sindh have never seen this phenonemon before - but they also report that there are now less mosquitos than they would expect, given the amoungt of stagnant, standing water that is around.

It is thought that the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders web thus reducing the risk of malaria, which would be one blessing for the people of Sindh, facing so many other hardships after the floods"

With arachnophobia you won't be going near those! Emotion: sweating
Yikes! That's a LOT of web! The "side" effect of few mosquitoes is good though, probably I need to get some spiders for our village house, lol.
One of the most bizarre things I've ever seen! Although I wouldn't like to find myself close to these trees.
I know my opinion probably differs from what most of you would say but I still have to tell it:

Fascinating! Emotion: smile
