Minor Threads: It's Like Extreme Makover for spiders!

Image credit: 

The always wonderful Boingboing has a great bit here on artist Nina Katchadouria who spent part of one summer repairing broken spiderwebs with bits of thread. Unfortunately, the spiders weren't impressed with her handiwork, and often either dismantled or abandoned the webs she weaved. And while I can see how traditional-thinking arachnids might not embrace Nina's aesthetic, I happen to like it. Take a look at the great photo below, and be sure to view more of her uninvited collaborations at her site, here.
