Interesting image. —- Clematis seeds fallen onto spider’s cob-web ?
Though, looks almost like man-made.

It is an active web in the same clematis vine I continue to visit. The word filaments captures so much of what I see in the web and vine: astronomical, electrical, botanical, and biological threads and fibers. It’s really marvelous to see.

I totally agree. If this image appeared in a scientific magazine saying “This is a Nano-tube structure inserted into human neuro system” I would just believe.

What are the thicker filaments on the surface? Does one spider build the web or is it a sort of communal web?

Those thicker filaments are what are left of the stems of the flowers of the clematis and the clematis seeds. I think that at least two spiders have built the webs here, and there is one lower down, built by a third spider, but it appears to be abandoned now. I don’t know if the two spiders know or visit each other, but the structures of their webs are very similar, which I find fascinating, and they are the same type of webs that I found in this clematis last year.

Wow-that’s really bizarre! I see lots of clematis seeds in there.

Yes, depending on the angle and light, and how close up you get, these can take on a very strange and fascinating appearance. 🙂
