A Dangerous Beauty

A silk design of fine steel thread hangs betwixt the rafters. An intricate weave of crosses and curves catches the slightest drafts. The holey roof would let in some rain that bedazzles the thin white strands while the following clear heavens allow each clinging droplet to reflect glorious prisms against the walls.

Then an unsuspecting victim flies into the sticky trap. Tangled into frenzy, each tremor guides the queen to her prey. With stealth and speed she bites and bundles her meal into a cocoon… or coffin.
