Silk

It's such a pretty thing in nature! I love how it reflects the sun and catches rain droplets.

I so agree! Spiderwebs are amazing. Did you know that spider silk is stronger than steel? (You would have to have a bunch of spider silk though!)

Agreed with both of your statements. Absolutely amazing. Same goes for your photo! Did you know that a thread of silk as thick as your finger could hold back a JET AIRPLANE? How crazy is that? (Let's start a thread about silk threads :D)

Like I said its really amazing! So many things are around us in nature to use for our benefit if we only look hard enough. I wonder if steel as thick as your finger or spider silk the same width would be stronger....
