The most amazing spider web I've ever seen was next to the Pan
American Highway in the department of Huehuetenango, Guatemala. There
were dozens or maybe hundreds of spiders in the same web. Unlike most
communal webs, this was an orb web. Each spider had its own orb about
three feet across. They connected to each other end to end so that
they tiled a plane that connected the power line to the ground. The
webs in each orb were the typical transparent color. The support lines
the individual orbs were built on were thick, yellow lines.
