>Incredible images of cocooned trees in Pakistan


The natural world intrigues me and I love hearing about incredible ways in which animals protect themselves from predators, plants manage to spread their spore using carriers and countries can move a good deal because of a tsunami.

This is one such amazing story. Last year a large portion of Pakistan was hit by bad floods and the water, which submerged one fifth of the country, took six months to recede. Of course a large number of people were affected by the natural phenomenon but so were the spiders, and their reaction to the disaster left a beautiful opportunity for some rare photos.

In the Sindh area millions of spiders made their way onto trees dotting the landscape and were stuck there for months. The result; a string of cocoons which covered their temporary homes.It’s like something out of an eerie movie.

It’s beautiful. Images from here.

Tell me sweet things
