Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This really tiny spider and web is only about 2cm or1/2" wide. It was quite hard to focus on! Taken in the back garden this morning - after we had 262mm or 8 1/2" of rain on Thursday and Friday!!

Wikipedia says the following about the zigzag pattern:
The web of the yellow garden spider is distinctive: a circular shape up to 2 feet (60 cm) in diameter, with a dense zigzag of silk, known as a stabilimentum, in the center. The purpose of the stabilimentum is disputed. It is possible that it acts as camouflage for the spider lurking in the web's center, but it may also attract insect prey, or even warn birds of the presence of the otherwise difficult-to-see web. Only those spiders that are active during the day construct stabilimenta in their webs.

We had no damage here - but there was lots of flooding and at least 5 drownings around the city - mainly from people driving into fast moving water.

Yes we are thanks Floyd:))) We live in a hilly suburb:))) Glad you liked the zigzags:))) Thanks :)))

I haven't seen this little fellow, then I 've not been looking for one, I'll now be more observant, Thanks Rob, We did well out of the resent rain event, 112mm and didn't put a run in the creek, it was the best rain we have had for 2 years.


I've only ever seen them in a cross formation Barb - so this was a first for me too:))) Thanks :)))


I've never seen a zigzag spider web, that's new to me. Thanks Rob :)
