Yellow garden spider, Argiope aurantia by James Braselton, Bugwood.org

There's a social media meme that says, “There is no better karate instructor than a spider web in the face.”

I don’t know about the karate skills, but nothing makes you swat, rub and dance quite like walking into a web. Just imagine how an insect feels. Growing up in the woods, I have walked through my fair share of webs and while I too, practice my karate skills when I do, I have grown to appreciate these fascinating creatures and their webs.
