These eerily amazing photos are in fact real and they were taken by an aid worker in Sindh,Pakistan in 2010. When heavy floods hit the region millions of spiders took to the trees to spin their webs. For more on this unique phenomenon see the National Geographic website.

Despite the unusual after effects of the flooding, one should not forget the humanity of the situation, and that many have died and lost everything in these devastating floods. So if you feel compelled to share this story or photos, please also remember the 5 million displaced people who still need help to rebuild their homes, just like the spiders.
