spider web color

  1. I was having my daughter hold a flashlight on a spider the other evening while I tried to take picture of it, but he got spooked and ran right when I pressed the trigger. So what we have here is a vibration on the web from him running but some cool color was produced, I think from the flashlight. anyway nothing too exciting, but neat colors.

  6. Well, I am blown away by this.

    It does not seem to be the spectrum of your flashlight but I am not an expert on light spectrums. The silk is a protein and the vibration is normal but that breakdown of the colour is incredible.

  7. Incredible!! I really like this!!
     
  8. I guess these are interference colours (like the colours on a soap bubble) but the vibration of the silk strands has turned the spots into arcs. The angle of the light must have been just right :cool:
