Hidden in the Labyrinth

The web of the labyrinth spider, Agelena labyrinthica, named after the maze-like corridors that it builds inside its web. If you look carefully, to the south-west of centre, you’ll see the spider, probably the female, who stays with the egg sac that is at the top of the web.

As much as spiders terrify me, they really are incredible. This picture really captures what wonderful little architects they are!

I love spiders. They are incredible. And I love how they make their web as a trap for their food. They are little but a genius architect.

Wow. Thank you for introducing me to labyrinth spider. I have now another learning to add to my knowledge. The labyrinth mother is very impressive.

I don’t like spiders inside my house, but I love to see the beautiful webs they create. Amazing picture!

It’s strange Carrie how almost everyone dislikes spiders. Do you think it is just the thought of being trapped/and being a meal?

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
