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.

I am Ashley, an incredibly introverted environmental enthusiast.
I'm studying to be a marine biologist.
I have a fierce love for all living things, a very broad sense of humor, and I'm likely too passionate for my own good.
Herein you'll find animals (especially creepy-crawlies), nature, science, art, some of my own photography, and occasionally a scattering of personal posts.
I'm an avid reader and music-listener, so suggestions are always welcome (you can check out my last.fm if you're interested).
I source all of my own posts unless it's my content, in which case I tag it "personal."
But that tag is littered with a bunch of other, boring things as well, so peruse with caution.
