The Spiders Kingdom

Giant cobwebs of Tetragnatha nithens spidres species cover the banks Soreq creek near Jerusalem, Israel. The creek water that originated in treated sewage water, are rich in organic substances that promote the proliferation of mosquitoes that serve as a source of food for spiders, which then reproduce in multitudes. Giant curtains of cobwebs envelop the creek's bank along hundreds of meters
