July 29, 2007: Bali, Rice Fields and Spiders

For some reason I got up early and visited the Nephila web. She was busy rebuilding her web. so I captured some early morning video of her weaving

Later, Didin came by and off we went to the countryside to just see more of Bali. On the way, Didin found himself in the middle of Nephila country. So we stopped to look at a huge cluster of webs. Here is one of the Nephila webs

And the web bathed with sunlight with our lady, Nephila in her launching position.
