Spider Web

Description:

There were many of these webs spotted on numerous acacia trees in this wadi. About 6 - 7 cm long on the end of branches. Their whiteness really stood out and you could see them from a distance away. If you look closely at Pic 4, you can see a web at the top of the acacia tree.

Habitat:

coastal desert wadi

Notes:

Pics 2 and 3 are of a different web than Pic 1. Are they both made by the same spider species?

Thanks, Mark Ridgway! I had a look at a list of spider for Egypt and only found Cyrtophora citricola. Wish I could have seen the spiders more clearly, but perhaps that is right?

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
