Inquiries, Requests, and a Place to Spill Your GutsSubmissions I am Ashley. This is my personal blog. If you want just marine biology, go here. I love the world; I really don't like people. I balance all this animosity towards the human race with being an almost always kind and gentle being to all creatures. I'm highly introverted and nature is my primary escape from people. Creepy-crawly-slimy things are my favorites. Dinosaurs are fantastic. Future marine biologist; presently an amateur entomologist, ichthyologist, artist, biologist, and writer. Literature, video game, and music connoisseur. I'm so full of passion for the world that it hurts. I think a lot, I laugh a lot, I love a lot. Almost none of the photos are mine and only some of the drawings are mine. Listen in.
As flood waters ravaged the area in March, spiders took to (slightly) higher ground on this bush in Wagga Wagga, Australia. Because the year has been so wet in Australia, there may have been a boom in insect numbers, leading to an increased number of spiders as well. The rampant webs that blanketed vast stretches of Wagga Wagga are likely a dispersal mechanism that allows spiders to move out of places where they’d surely be drowned. The number and expanse of webs around the area was described as looking like snow.
