Uggghhh! Millions and billions of spiders in the trees... check out the link for the photos. Actually, it isn't gross at all...

Trust me.


Spider Trees



"Russell Watkins works for the Department for International Development (DfID), the British governmental department responsible for promoting development and poverty reduction.

I took these photos in December 2010. We do not know when this phenomenon first appeared but the residents, who had left the region in August during the floods, discovered these trees on their return in November 2010. They had never seen anything like it before.

As the waters rose, the spiders instinctively climbed the trees, bit by bit, to protect themselves. The floods took so long to recede that the spiders ended up colonising whole trees. The spider webs which they wove ended up embalming the branches, creating these strange sights. They were just small, harmless spiders, but there were a lot of them !"

Looks like the biggest, most disgusting cotton candy I've ever seen.
