THE PERFECT TRAP

The luxurious  JW Marriot Hotel  at Mussoorie has studied nature beautifully.

They organized an enchanting  trip called Walnut trail.

Pictures that follow are part of this splendid trail.

What a delightful sight as the mountain spring gurgles down the mountainside.

The gorgeous  violet and yellow wildflowers  sway with  the gentle cool breeze and the sunlight filters through the undergrowth around the mountain stream.

A gentle movement and a glimmer in the sunlight reveals another  marvel of nature.

Strategically placed between two species of wildflowers  is  a perfectly made spider’s web.

The rays of the sun reflect off each strand, revealing a marvelous trap setup for insects that would approach the flowers.

A spider  patiently awaits it’s prey and sits  right in the centre of this circular web.

      1. I thought you might find my comment funny, although I do mean every word of it.

        Fantastic photos of spider webs, and terrific information too.

  1. Brilliant! A lesson from the spider and its web; as an individual, you can achieve a whole lot in life by leveraging the power of networking. Notice the spider could only sit at the centre waiting in confidence because of the network/web it has built.
