  • Childhood

  • Trees cocooned in spiders' webs after flooding in Pakistan, 7 December 2010.

    An unexpected side-effect of the 2010 flooding in parts of Sindh, Pakistan, was that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters; because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water took so long to recede, many trees became cocooned in spiders webs.
