Morning Dew on a Spiders Web
Morning Dew which highlights the beautiful structure of a spiders web which is a device created by a spider out of proteinaceous spider silk extruded from its spinnerets.<br />
<br />
The tensile strength of spider silk is greater than the same weight of steel and has much greater elasticity. Its microstructure is under investigation for potential applications in industry, including bullet-proof vests and artificial tendons. <br />
