I stole the by-line because I thought it was great (thank you Larissa Dubecki).
The photo was taken by photographer Angela Wylie near Lake Burrumbeet last Friday.
It is indeed a remarkable sight credited to ridiculously industrious baby orb spiders' webs.
The article mentions how ironically the webs appeared not far from where the film 'Charlotte's Web' was filmed last year.
The official name for the activity is aerial ballooning. The spiders dispense silk and allow the wind to drag it until it lifts them up and lets them "fly".
Although this will do nothing to dispel foreigners terror that Australia is a country filled with multitudes of enormous; deadly snakes, insects and spiders it was too gorgeous and astonishing an image not to share.
