Sunlight creates colorful spectrum on spider webs. This particular web was torn out, Spider hanging on one strand and there was another strand parallel to that. I have used shallow depth of field of Macro photography to get impressive pattern of vibrant refracting colors on distant strand. I have strong feeling that these colors have big role in attracting the preys.
